My 6 year old Step son keeps pooing his pants

My 6 year old Stepson keeps pooing his pants however he doesn't do it all the time. He goes to stay with his BM every second weekend and without question he will poo his pants at least once while he is there. He doesn't do it at home. I don't know what to do as have tried talking to him, talked to our doctor, tried sticker charts, I've tried talking to his BM about reminding him to go etc but nothing has seemed to work. I am starting to wonder what is happening while he is there. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Ask him if there are things happening at the other house. My first thought is that he may not feel comfortable for some reason. Does BM have a new boyfriend? Does she have an open door policy when it comes to the bathroom? (No closing the door while he goes). Also, your husband may want to talk to her and get insight. Maybe suggest that he clean himself up if she's currently doubt it? This is a tough one. Good luck.
