I could use some advice. After probably a whole year of no accidents at all (my son was potty trained by 3), my son is wetting his pants almost every day (sometimes more than once) because he is "too busy playing" to get to the bathroom. We have tried just about everything -- negative reinforcement, positive reinforcement, near constant reminders. He seems to have no shame/embarrassment or regrets about it, other than that it gets him in trouble with us. When I ask him why he wet his pants, he always just shrugs and says "I was too busy". The REALLY annoying thing as sometimes he does it while he is watching TV. Ugh!
Any thoughts on how to stop this? It has been going on for 3 or 4 months now.
