MY 5 YEAR OLD JUST WILL NOT STOP PEEING HIMSELF!!! PLEASE HELP -EDITED
My 5 year old SS pees himself everytime he sleeps. I have tried everything!! I put a shower curtain underneath his sheet but his mattress still has hundreds of pee stains from before and I can not afford him a new mattress, he just got that one not even a year ago. I have tried training paints but even those add up in money and I have an infant I need to buy diapers for plus food and bills and other expenses these just are hard to fit inmy budget. I have to wash his sheets every day and to save me some hassle I have taught him how to wash his own sheets, but still its frustrating and is costing me a lot more money than it should. I smell urine all the time he always smells like urine and pees everytime he goes to bed and every time he naps. I am so lost at what I should do!!! I have took him to the doctors, and she asked if he was being abused or if he is exposed to abuse and he is not, I am with him every second unless he is at school. I just don't know what to do anymore. I am OCD and having the smell of urine in my home is absolutely driving me crazy!! I have stocked up on lysol and febreze sprays but the just barely cover up the scent and I really want to just get rid of the problem!!! Please help I need some advice!!
I got a few comments about him washing his own sheet...this is something all my children do and it is NOT a punishment...simple my parenting style. ALL of my children learn to clean up after themselves no matter if they spill their food or drink on the floor, if they splash the bathroom wet after a bath, if they get their toys all over their room, no matter what they do to make a mess they clean up after themselves!! THIS IS NOT PUNISHMENT!!! This is simply life skills that I as a mother would like my children to have. I believe they will be better teenagers and adults because of this and they do not look at it as a punishment. SO BEFORE YOU COMMENT! NO I DO NOT PUNISH HIM FOR IT!! But I will not treat him any differently because of it either so yes he WILL wash his own sheets and no I do not have to tell him to do so!! And NO he does not think of it as a punishment and he does get a sticker on his incentive chart the same as he would any other chore.
