Its been about six months since Jordan has done this. I thought it was over. Yesturday he pulled off his pants and poopied on the floor then decorated himself and everything around him. Is this a stage or what can I do to get him to stop this. Finger paints were my best idea.

my son would hold his poop for 2 weeks and kept soiling his underwear like the child above. we finally resorted to giving him a dulcolax suppository when we knew he had to unload. i also made him sit on the toilet (sometimes for hours) until he finally went. after we did this a few times, it established a new behavioral pattern for him that has stuck for 5 years.

I am so over poop. My 6-year-old went to the MD again yesterday because he will go in small spurts all night. He won't let it all out at once. I've read about reward systems, and I do think they work best for us. I made a chart with "Clean" (undies after coming home from school) and "Toilet Time". I asked his teacher to set time aside for him to spend in the bathroom after he finishes lunch. He will have toilet time at least two more times after school is over, and then he'll get a sticker for at least sitting on the toilet. If he has a big poop, he'll get a quarter, a sticker, or a sucker for that day. He just doesn't get it that he needs to push! This will be going on for 2 weeks, and I hope it works.

Yea he only does it when im not looking, I was feeding the baby inthe room while putting my two year old down for a nap. Turning his clothes around good idea. sewing em up also a great idea. Thanks yall!:)

We had this happen on a regular basis at every nap or bedtime until we cut the feet out of Billy's pajamas and turned them around backwards, so they zip up the back.

You can read our whole story about "Winning the Pajama Game" here:


Then we put another T-shirt on over his head so that he can't shimmy out the top.

By all accounts, this is just a stage they go through, so the best advice is to dress him in clothes he can't easily escape when you aren't watching.

My fingers are crossed for you. I truly feel your pain :-)

My daughter does this too. I put overalls on her, I made some special overalls that button in the back so she can't get them off. I also sewed all her Pyjamas together at the waist and put a zipper in the the back so again she can't take her clothes off. if she can't take her clothes off she can't take her pull up off. I don't know if that helps you. My daughter only does it when she's alone like at night or nap time.
