Good evening,

My son is 3 and every now and then he soils his pants. How or what can I do to get him to stop that. I am a single dad and he lives with me. Someone please help

Best thing to do? Let him have accidents (because that is what they are) and don't ever make him feel bad for it. Also, keep a spare pair of clothing for him in the car for those just in case times.

If you have noticed it his been a while since he used the bathroom, have him go to the bathroom.

Have him help clean himself up and remind him to try and get to the bathroom faster next time. Accidents are VERY normal. Some kids have rare and random ones... some kids have them frequently for a while and randomly for years. Depends on the kid.

If it's a recent behavior it is possible that he has a UTI or a constipation issue... but it is more likely just a normal occurrence that most young children go through.

Like 'Little Miss' mentions... if it's been a while since he's used the bathroom you can remind him to try.
