Could he be constipated and not know he has to go? Is he trying to hold it until he gets home? Is he afraid to ask the teacher to go to the bathroom?

Elizabeth wet her pants twice this year in Kindergarten. They were all supposed to be quietly working, so she was afraid to ask the teacher if she could go. They don't have to ask the teacher, they can just go when they need to. I told that to DD, and the teacher went over the rules with the entire class again. We haven't had a problem since.

If it makes you feel better, our teacher said that it is fairly common for Kindergarteners to have accidents. I know that doesn't help too much when it's your child, though! Hopefully you can find the root of the problem.
