My 5 year old son keeps wetting his pants at school. It is really becoming a problem, because he misses class time when he does it because they have me take him home. I have had several talks with him trying to encourage him to ask his teacher to go, but he is scared to ask her. He also tells me he doesn't know when he has to go. I have taken him to the doctor over this and they tell me his urine is normal and everything is fine. At home I have to tell him to use the bathroom, but at school I'm not there to tell him and he won't ask. His teacher knows that he is scared to ask her to go, but hasn't done anything to help the situation. I don't know what to do anymore. I don't expect the teacher to tell him go to the bathroom, but I don't know what else to do. I am looking for advice from anyone that has experienced this with their child. I am really concerned because he only goes half day school right now, and can't always make it without peeing his pants. He will be going a full day in the fall, and I am worried this issue is going to worsen.
