We are at our wit's end with this. My 8+ year old granson keeps soiling his clothes (both ways). We have tried everything. He rarely wets his bed. He does take medication for ADHD and I don't know if there is a connection or not. We have tried everything...withholding privileges, grounding...my daughter has even gone so far as to take away underwear. Please help!

Have you taken him to the doctor? Constipation can cause accidents. I would rule out any medical issues before I continued with punishment.

Soiling, and wetting can be a symptom of a medical problem. Please contact your PCP. If no medical condition is found, your PCP can also help with techniques to stop the problem.
