My son is going to be 12 in 4 months and it seems like he should have his bathroom habits down by now but if he is not sent to the bathroom every so often, he will have an accident in his pants.
He says that he can't feel that he needs to go till it's too late, (and I'm amazed he hasn't had any bladder infections from trying to hold it) and it can be so aggrevating to find when he has wet his pants. Every so often when he's deeply involved in something i'll send him to go even if he doesn't need to. It seems like he really doesn't care if he makes a mess in his pants and I just don't understand it. Sometimes i will find that he has done it and it trying to hide it and i'll find wet pants in his room. Punishment does no good. It can be very flustering.
