My son is 7 years old. He refuses to go to the toilet when he has to have a bowel movement. He has, at times, used it for a week at a time, but that was only when he was promised a special toy. I have tried everything I can think of. He even went to see a GI doctor. I was told to give him Milk of Magnesia and Mineral Oil. All that does is make him have accidents in his underwear several times a day. He is in 2nd grade and hold it until he gets home, then uses his underwear.
Please, if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thank you
