my 5 yr old has suddenly started wetting his pants at school, he will give excuses like the toilet was too far or there was a long queue at the toilet. my worry is that it has happened a few times the last couple of weeks, i even told his teacher to remind him to go atleast twice in an hour.when hes at home he goes but sometimes i just have to remind him when i see him "dancing". i would really appreciate any suggestions.

Time .... not uncommon for boys. Aside from a medical condition, or some stresssor you don't yet know about .... I'd let time pass and see what happens

My son just turned 6 and has started wetting his pants. 2 and 3 times a day! My husband and I have tried everything, rewards, making him stayin wet pants, he just does not care. We have practically begged him to tell us why he doesn't go in the restroom like his friends, like he knows how to do and he will not tell us. I'm terrified my son will be in the first grade, and will walk around school with wet pants. Ugh, please help. Considering going to see his pediatrician.
