Just read your post....i am glad that i am not the only one dealing with this issue..and also not the only one frustrated. My son is 10 years old and this has been an issue for about 1 month now, we have tried talking with him and rewarding him (never punishing) to try and figure this out. How is your son now?
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi.. I really need someone to talk to about this. I have an 8 year old girl who has been pooing in her underwear for years. She doesn't have any obvious issues (happily married parents no abuse etc etc) and is an intelligent bright outgoing happy kid with lots of friend etc etc. We don't make an issue of it but she is on laxatives for encopresis (makes matters worse!) But it is an upsetting situation for everyone. Are you any further on with any solutions. Trying to get appt to see a child psychologist at the moment to see if that has any answers. Would just be good to have someone to talk to. xx email ***@****
