My son is almost 7yrs old and still poops his pants. He will not stop what he is doing to go to the restroom. He also will not clean himself. I have done all the yelling, grounding, and taking away of toys that I can. What else can I do???

Thanks, I have stopped yelling. It is just sooo frustrating. My next stop was going to be to the doctor. If we are in public, he will not tell me, he'll just sit in it until we get home. I've thought the same thing about him being humiliated by peers, but no such luck. My ex has supposedly helped him or showed him how to clean himself, but i'm not too sure. I have left him to clean for quite a while before, otherwise he just yells for me.....

Stop yelling at him and punishing him for sure. How long have you left him to clean up? He WILL clean himself eventually,. Personally though, if my 7 year old were still pooping his pants our first trip would be to the doctor. That's assuming you haven't already since it wasn't mentioned...

first of all...stop yelling and make him clean himself and the mess he is making he is plenty old enough. while he is playing make him stop and go to the restroom do not give him a choice. eventually humiliation from his peers will probably correct this but as a mother i would hate to see it go that far.
good luck and God bless!
