My son is 8 and wets his pants daily/nitely. He uses the toilet 50% of the time. It is very frustrating. He never admits it and is too involved to change. He has sensory processing disorder, therefore, we believe, he isn't aware and is attention is not what it should be. We had him evaluated for primary reflex disorder. Our occupational therapist checked him out. He has several reflexes that haven't integrated. It is quicker for you all to google Primary Reflex Disorder. The reflex that affects the bladder is the Galant. There are exercies that integrate this reflex. We haven't gotten there yet. We are also seeing a chiropractor who is firmly convinced she can get him to where we need him to be. The patience are gone. But I have no choice but to carry on! Chins up everyone!
I took my son when he was 6 to a chiropractor and it didn't work. He is now 8 and still wets his pants during the day. I have had 2 pedatricians help and an urologist and nothing has helped. Not sure if a psychiatrist will help or if this is something he justs needs to outgrow. He is a smart kid and is at the top of his class. It is so frustrating to have a smart kid that can't figure out how to use the toilet.
My son is 7 years old and going into second grade in the fall. Recently, he started wetting his pants once or twice per week. He had accidents before but not this often. He says that he can't control it. He is very happy, bright, and well rounded. We keep him very busy this summer with camp, karate, swimming lessons, Kumon and playdates I don't understand why this is happening. His Doctor thinks that it will pass. Did anyone figure out the reason for this? Should I try a psychologist? He is a very sensitive child.
It sound like you child has sensory integration needs and may benefit from seeing a good outpatient Occupational Therapist if you haven't tried this route already. I recognize similarities your description to my own son.

I have a 6 yr old neice who still wets her pants. she says she forgets to go. and also said that her daddy told her she has to hold it. I tried to explain to her that she doesnt have to hold it. when you have to go pee you tell them I have to go...now! I tried to tell her if she holds it too much or long she could get sick from it. her parents are split up for a year now and she sees her dad on weekends. she pees her pants no matter who she is with. I am concerned that there may be something either physical or mental causing her to "forget" to go pee. I have tried to get my sister to take her to the doctor. but she doesnt see anything wrong. she does dicipline her when she pees her pants, especially coming home from school wet. oh also my neice says she is afriad of the big toilets and ones that flush themselves. I want to help her. but im not sure what to do or where to start. my sister wont listen and my neices father is a complete idiot. what should i do?
