  • We need a little more info than that... What huge changes have taken place in your family and home life recently?

  • How long has the kid been trained? Are the accidents happening all the time or just now and then?

  • He may be constipated, which I know sounds backwards but it can cause accidents of that nature. I would take a trip to the ped to rule anything out in the medical department. Other than that I agree with the others. It could be an emotional response to something...

  • No major changes within the last 30 days, which is when he started going in his underwear and not the potty.

    He has been trained for about 4 months. Was rewarded with stars on a chart and made a big fuss over. He loved that feeling of accomplishment. Then he woke up one day and hasn't gone in the potty since. Says maybe tomorrow he will right after.

    It happens everyday now.

    I am taking him to his pediatrician ASAP...

    Thank you!

  • My son has done that. I guess my situation is different though. His father and I share custody so he sometimes has a difficult time with the transition.
