I am livid. Just tonight me and my husband, (will) caught our six year old son urinating in our kitchen. WHICH IS CARPET! of all places to go potty he was peeing where we cook. eat. ect. Dylan was very ashamed and umbarrassed to get "caught", so we tried to keep our cool. It was very hard for me as I was so shocked. I couldnt belive such a thing. why ?? why?? why????
Dylan is a very bright child. The school even moved him up a grade because of him being so intelligent for his age.
potty trained at age 2. never has accidents. hes peed the bed maybe 8x total, and that was at least a year ago
Asked him why he did this. He says he only does it at night when hes afraid to go upstairs to use the bathroom.
We notcied an odd smell coming from our kitchen, a while back. and just last week when vacuuming I thought the upstairs bathroom must of been leaking because I smelled urine coming from the carpet.
I put down carpet powder, vacuumed shrugged it off. and was planning on calling a plumber to check the upstairs plumbing. Im glad I didnt! we dont need a plumber! but now I dont know what we need.
So, my question I gess is a few things.
1) If he is scared to go upstairs, and this may be, since he only dos this at night time, once it is dark, I can leave the bathroom light on, but is it deeper? is this emotional? do we have a futire "problem child on our hands"
2) I can get past the shock of this happenning, as I read other mothers who have the same problem. MY WORRY IS THAT it could make us sick? hes peeing on our floor!!!!!!! our kitchen floor. where our infant twins crrawl!
can this be making us sick? whats the health aspects of this????
3) Bascailly thats is, it just freaks me out, that the twins have been crawling around exactly where he had been urinating, we don tkno how long hes been doing it, but if we bend down, can definnitly smell urine. so it has to have been for some time now. I feel dirty. I feel gross. I feel like Im liiving in filth now. It just makes me sick to think that there is URINE on my kitchen carpet.
**( we are a strict church going family, and i just cant believe he would do such a thing) we set rules and my children are very fortunate. we give them all the same attention. or so I thought. Now I dont kno what to think.
anyone with any advice I would love. and i thank you in advanced, as I am so umbarrased about this. I dont even know how to treat my carpet now! How do you sanatize carpet!!!???!? * cries*sighs*tears*
Thank You and bless you all,
