I have a 7 yr. old boy that poops on himself everyday. Some days more than once or twice a day. He also pees his bed about 2 to 3 times a week. He was easy to potty triane when he was 2. When he turned 5 or 6, he started peeing his bed, n pooping in his pants. He seems to not do this in school. I am so frustrated with the whole situation.

Some children have difficulty pooping in toilets away from home. If your child holds her poop all day, this may be the reason. Toddlers can get so wrapped up in what they are doing, they forget to stop to poop. If your child realizes it is time to use the toilet midway through soiling her pants, the solution is to schedule potty breaks.

Your child might get constipated again or soil his or her pants during treatment, especially when being weaned off of the stool softeners.
