Potty training regression

lkp2000 posted:
My 10 yr old son was potty trained at 5 yrs old. Everything went great for about 3 years. He stopped using the toilet about a month before starting a new school ( same district, just different building). The teachers get him to pee and poop in the toilet at school, and he would go in the toilets at church, but not at home.
He either poops his pants or deposits in the yard ( thank goodness we live in the country with no close neighbors). I have tried going back to the rewards system that he was trained with, but, so far no luck.
He can poo four to five times a day! The dr says this is bc he doesn't push it all out at one time. Although each elimination looks like alot to me.
I feel isolated bc noone has suggestions. My husband doesn't want him in diapers,but, I am the only one that cleans him up and does the laundry.
Any help is welcome. Thank you.
