hy I need some advice as I am daymother to a 8year old boy. He is once a week in my house for lunch and later after school for his homework. My son didn't say anything when his friends trousers were wet even if he smelled really bad. But now I am really concerned as my sons other friends are beginning to influence him no more to play with this boy. I have no idea what to do that this boy stops to pee in his pants. I always have the impression that it is not really important to him to have dry trousers.

Does anyone has any idea what to do to stop him?

Thanks

Is there a way to set up regular intervals at which you take this child to the potty? The child is possibly too embarrassed about it to say anything to anyone including his mother about it. Does the boy bring extra clothing with him?

I'm so sorry that your son's other friends are being so cruel about the situation. What does your child say about it? You said that your son has told the child that he doesn't like the smell. Well, that could just mean that the boy is too embarrassed to say anything to anyone else about it. How sad that the other children are making fun of him. Definitely talk to the parents. Have them bring an extra change of clothes for him.

Thanks. Yes his mother is also worried but medically is everything ok as far as I can see in his family everything is ok. I think he is only very lazy. I am looking for any idea to make it more important to him to go to the bath. So far I told my son that he has to tell the boy that he doesn't like the smell. Now we wait if that changes anything.
If you have any other Idea what to do next. Please state it. Thanks

WOW it seems like this child doesn't care if he has wet pants. Does he have a medical issue that needs to be addressed? Is there something happening at home? This child peeing himself could be a sign that something is happening to him medically or otherwise that he is afraid to talk to someone about. If I were in your shoes I think I would investigate a little. Talk to the parents if possible and try to have a one on one with the child get him to talk. Maybe it is simply that he is just lazy! Good luck with this and I hope it all works out in the end for you and him.
