My boyfriends son is almost 6 years old and he pees his pants and bed almost 3-4 times a week, and has recently started pooping his pants as well. Ive been with his dad for over a year and this was present when I became part of his life. His father never did anything about it, just cleaned up and went about his day, saying it was an "accident". I do not agree. Since I do daycare, I am with the boy every day. In the past year I have noticed that he is not "up to speed" to most almost 6 year olds. (i have a 6 yr son myself) I'm not sure what to do, as I'm very frustrated with this. I had him take his son to the doctor and she said he's not old enough to worry!!! seriously?!? He starts kindergarten next year and has no interest in stopping this behavior. He knows its not right, but he doesn't care. I feel like I'm the only one in the situation that cares or feels this isn't normal behavior. How can I get his father to get on board with this fact? I am starting to resent them both and I feel horrible about it. I love them both, but am at my wits end with this!?! Help!

Wow. I don't actually know how to help you with this situation but I do agree with you. I would be worried and upset by it also. It's also sucky that no one else seems to think it's a big deal. What does the kiddo say after he poops/pees? Is he behind in other areas also? I'm sorry that I can't help! Hugs!
