My son has been potty trained since he was 2 1/2 but my husband was deployed during this time. I taught him to pull his pants down so that he would not pee on himself. So, he did this for about a year before daddy came home. However, my mistake was already done and he is in a habit of pulling his pants completely down while going to the bathroom. This is okay at home, but when he goes to school in August, I am afraid that he will be made fun of. We have tried encouraging him to be a "big boy like daddy" but he will occasionaly do it but his automatic response when going to the bathroom is to pull his pants completely down. Any advice on how to fix this problem that I have created?Answer Question

Op here- I guess I am more worried about the older kids making fun of him. He is in Pre-K at the school and they have their own bathroom, however, he had to stay in after school care for a few days. He went to one of the main bathrooms and did this and one of the 4th or 5th graders made fun of him. For the next few days that I picked him up he had an accident on the way home. He had been holding it in until we got home to avoid going to the bathroom at school. I had talked with the After school director and she said that they would allow him to go at a time when no one else was going to the bathroom. When he gets to kindergarten though, I don't think that he can avoid this as much, so I am trying to prevent it before it happens (again).

LOL OP. It's funny but not funny. My older son did the same thing. When he was in kindergarten he came home and told me another kid called him butt boy. I had to walk out of the room lol. I just told him what to do and had daddy show him again what to do, and he never had a problem again.
