  • Comforting to know I am not the only with this problem. I posted a questions yesterday about my pre-schooler needing re-training. My son poops in his pants at school and sits in it hoping no one is going to notice. It's dfficult to not get notice for obvious stinky reasons. I am leading to believe that it might be stress related. I ask him why does this and he's clever enough to change the subject to something else. I can't seem to get to the bottom of it. I might have to resort to professional help.
