Why is my 4 yr old son who is potty trained all the sudden having an accident every other day?

And then to top it off hes in time out right now for just now peeing in our trash room!! Yeah he didnt pee in the trash he peed all over our lawn equipment and floor. I dont know what the heck is going on with him. He has always tried to pee in the trash in the bathroom but we just tell him no and he goes in the toilet. Has anyone went through this? Is there something Im missing and what can I do to change it?

  • find out if something has happened... sometimes they dont really mean to use the potty...bladder control is not 100%...and he might also have bladder issues

  • Agree with other poster and go back to taking him regularly to the potty. No anger, just matter of fact. Boys can be mischievous though so some of it is understandable. ;)

  • If he goes to a regular babysitter or daycare you might check with them to see if they have noticed anything...Kids often " Learn" Wonderful tricks from others their age.
