  • When he is home make a potty schedule. Make him go whether he feels like it or not and either stand or sit for a minute or so. It may help get his bladder on a schedule.

  • so he uses the bathroom at school but not at home? Does he wear pull ups at home or undies? alot of times if they get to wear pull ups at home they automaticaly think they can just use them and not the toilet.

  • You mean he's in diapers? Or do you mean he has accidents in his pants? If it's diapers I don't know what to tell you. If it's accidents you could ask the teacher to discreetly remind him to go.
