I have seen a handful of posts this week complaining of their 5, 6, 7 even twelve year olds pissing and shitting themselves, and not just when they are sleeping at night. One said their kid was just too lazy to get up at night, so she put diapers on him.... Really!?!? Does this seem crazy to anyone else?

1 mom liked this

People might think it's just the child being lazy but really they are not, no one would choose to defecate themselves if they had any control. I know my daughter is 13 now, we nearly have it under control but there was a time when she was also suffering encopresis, or the involuntary release of fecal matter.

Yeah.
My 4 year old actually peed the bed the other night, after having what I thought was a col all week!
If she wets herself it's a UTI. Sure enough it was!
I couldn't imagine her not being potty trained at this age, or even age 3!

Well, it isn't really uncommon. Something like 15-20% of five year olds still have night time accidents. That percentage goes down as they get older, but it still happens. Can't fault someone when it's a medical issue.

But day time accidents?

Yes, there are times that it happens to children, the poster up above the other anon mentioned Encompresis (SP), That can cause daytime evacution of bowels as well as urine. It's involuntary for some children, especially if they are under any stressors in their lives. The number one question ususally is are they being abused. It's got nothing to do with being lazy.

Yup I find that nuts. I was at a friends house one time and saw her 4 year old son shit himself while playing Xbox, because he didnt' want to stop playing. I was in shock, I didn't know what to say. Maybe it's because I have girls, but I can't even fathom them pooping in their panties because they are too lazy to go to the bathroom. Not in my house.

I just saw the above post about that disorder (I can't spell it either), and this was not that. I watched him verbally refuse to go to the bathroom because he didn't want to stop playing. It was total laziness.
