Does your child smear his shit?

A collection of stories from various other forums.

1)Ugh. This behavior has gone on for some time now. It's not a daily thing, but often enough that there's constantly a smear somewhere. My 7 year old son uses the restroom & leaves small poo smears on my walls. I've asked why he did it in the past & he said he didn't know. I've made him clean it up & he continues to do it! How do I make this stop & why is he doing it?

2)I have a 2year, 4month boy who is in the beginning stages of potty training. He wears his pul ups and loves them, but we have a huge issue that I can not figure out. When he is going down for a nap, or waking up, he poops takes his pull up off, then smears it all over the walls. This has been going on for months now. We make him help us clean it, then tell him he did a bad thing, and place him in his no no chair. This is obviously not working!!! Any advice? I am open to any suggestions!!!

3)is it normal for 10yr old boy to smear feaces over bed linen, walls and hide dirty underwear behind cupboards.? this is prob a stupid question to ask. I dont think it is normal but my partner wont discuss it with me as it is his child and he thinks i am out to cause trouble by mentioning it.

4)My 12 year old son, has been (not very well) trying to hide smeared poop on our furniture...I guess wherever he is sitting at the time he is touching it. I can 't get an answer from him, of whether it is just from not wiping well or not. It seems to be more than just a bad wiping job. My son definitely has some defiant issues with authority. He tests every boundary that there is. We had to throw away an entire set of furniture because of this. HE said he would stop and after he was apologetic, I let it go. Guess what my other children found on the new couch?? He is a social and functioning in every other realm, completely, "normal" ---I don't like using that phrase.

5)My son is 15 yrs old and he poops on the floor in his room and on the floor in the bathroom. I don't know what to do? Her doesn't have a behavior problem. He is usually obedient. However lately when I tell him to clean up his poop, he is reluctant to do so. It is putting a strain on the entire family. The doctor told me to give him some stool softener. I did and it is soft poop every where now! I was going to a therapist and she told me to put paper on the floor. I had medical test done on him, and everything was OK. He has not had a psychiatric test, yet. But everywhere I call in the Greensboro & Winston Salem area, no therapist or psychiatrist specialize in that area and can not help me. What really screwed up about it no one has even mention to me about having him tested for ADD. It has truly put a strain on the family. I have to restrict the movement of my 1yr daughter, my other daughter is ashamed to bring her friends over, my fiance can't keep his mouth shut about it in the neighborhood, his father blames me for not beating the **** out of him (over the toilet), and my house smells like a poop. As much as I don't want to but I am giving him up to his father. He doesn't want to go, but I know I can't help him here anymore. It has put so much stress on me, trying to referee the family, I even wanted to and seriously gave much thought about killing myself to get out of it. Has anyone resolved this problem? If yes please tell me how you did it. Thank you

6)I have a soon to be 13 year old that keeps pooping in our shower. He is smart, out going and has many friends. He is also well behaved and a good student. He started pooping in the shower over a year ago. He denies he is the one doing it and has gone as far to blame his siblings, my husband and myself. We all know its him. He is only allowed to shower in our basement bathroom. We make him clean up his own mess-he throws a fit and gets upset trying to convince us it is not him. It is absolutely him-I started checking the shower before he bathes. This past month I have noticed several times that he smells terrible. His siblings have become so disgusted with him that they say mean things and hurt his feelings. I don't know what to do. I took him to a therapist for about 6 months. He does not have ADD, ADHD or any diagnosed mental health or behavior disorder. The therapist had no answer for us. I am just sick of this and want it to stop-I feel terrible for our son and just do not understand why he is doing this. He gets a lot of attention in more positive ways that he shouldn't have to do this. ?????

Why is this happening? All of these moms claim their kids are completely normal. There is nothing normal about this! From a child who is potty training, ok but if my 7,10,12,15 year old was doing this and there was nothing wrong with him...he would be beaten and shamed until this disgusting behavior stopped. I would force him to wear a sign to school that said, "I like to play with my own shit."

Naeem did it once when he was around 2 ??  He made me art work.  You should have seen this kid.  He was like come mama come see...  uhhh yeah not happy! Lol

He also ate it once when he was like a year and a half...  he came at me w/ brown stuff around his mouth and all over his hands.  The closer he got I figured what he had gotten into...  ugh again and total VOMIT moment!!!

.... I'm glad this isn't true at my house... 

But I can say if it did, I'd NEVER "beat" them. 


There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.
