is it behavioral issue when a 10yr old plays with their poo?

[deleted account] ( 56 moms have responded )

is it normal for 10yr old boy to smear feaces over bed linen, walls and hide dirty underwear behind cupboards.? this is prob a stupid question to ask. I dont think it is normal but my partner wont discuss it with me as it is his child and he thinks i am out to cause trouble by mentioning it

no it isn;t normal, and even if it is going to cause a issue with youe partner you as an adult responsible for this little boy you have to do something, even if you claim a tummy bug and get him to the dr and ask about it, god luck (i don;t promote lying to your husband but the child needs to be put first on this one and if you have to fib to do it then you do what you have to do)

It's not normal for a 10 year old to do this, however it may be different if this child already has behavioral issues. If no other issues are involved then the child is lashing out about something and his parent needs to get to the bottom of it before it develops into something bigger.

It seems abnormal to me.. are there other things he does that you would question his behavior?
