Hello, I am so frustrated with my husband and my son with these accidents. They will happen every day now because we have put him in pull-ups now. He goes at school and will sit in all day and then not take a shower. He said he doesn't know he did it so I did make him an appointment with a specialist in digestion issues. I just wanted to know if anymore has had to deal with this situation, and how they handled it. This has almost broke my marriage up. It seems like he doesnt know it is there because I will check him and there is just poop stains there I have never seen large poop in his pants but, large stains. I have taken his xbox away due to laziness and I am thinking about pulling him out of school because he has had several accidents there as well. So should I home school him before these kids make fun of him. He is well behaved at home and I spend alot of time with him but, it is hard because then it feels like I am rewarding him. I make him wash his clothes and take showers all the time. He doesnt seem to mind that it is there and it drives me crazy but, I really don't think he knows it is in his pants. Please help me get my husband and my son back to normal. Thanks

That is what I think it may be or at least I hope it is. He has an appt with the dr. for these cases so I hope to end this soon.

I'm not sure why your son is doing this but it may help for. You to research encopresis.
