My son is driving me insane!

He's six. In the last hour I have heard him say
"What! I can't control my bladder!" (Peed in his pull-up before bed, like minutes after putting in on)
"I can't control my poop!" (Poop accident)
"I can't control my legs! (Not being careful and kicked his Legos off the bed and broke it, which then he got mad)


Seriously driving me nuts!!!

He is not getting enough exercise during the day.

Six and still using pull-ups? Sounds like he's playing you and taking advantage. My 3 year old doesn't even use pull-ups anymore, and it took a long time to potty train her.

Make him watch a video of The Little Engine That Could over and over until he can explain to you that he's old enough to control his actions.

where does he hear that stuff? I have a almost 6 yr old who never says stuff like that. I also have an almost 3 yr old with Spina Bifida and he really can't control his bladder or bowel and has problems with his legs. But we never say things like that in front of him.

He needs them overnight. His pull-up is always soaked in the morning. He stays dry maybe twice a year?

Who knows! He has aspergers and likely adhd but he functions well enough in school to not need an iep so it frustrates me with all the behaviors I deal with at home. He sees theorists and they tell me I am doing everything "right". He sees a psychiatrist next month

Make him start taking responsibility. He pooped then he cleans himself up. He kicks something with his legs he ccross leans it up. It will stop real soon.
