my little brother has the same problem except he's 8 and my parents are always gone out on business. so we get to see them very rarely so i can see where it could be a great deal of stress on him because he poops his pants constantly. he goes in his pants and when i tell him to use the restroom when he feels the need to go he never does. and it seems to be very common in 8 year olds lives and also males at that. i've tried almost everything to get him to stop and i think it's stress and i think when i was on top of everthing and we never had to worry about anything like money issues or anything he wouldn't do it as much or do it ever. so i definitely think this is a stress related issue with children. well i'm just posting what i've researched on. and i just really thought it was a concerning issue because it definitely isn't hereditary.
