My 6 year old son has started pooping his pants again. his dad and I seperated 2 years ago and he went and stayed with his dad for 3 months and while at his dads I relocated to a new city. while he was at his dads he started pooping his pants again. And now I have him back and I can not get him to stop pooping his pant. I am lost and dont know what to do to get him to poop in the bathroom again.
Since this is a traumatic event for children (divorces), I would spend some extra time with your child just to ask and LISTEN about how he/she is feeling. Doing this daily should help some, but it will also build/reinforce your bond with each other. The biggest point is to not get mad/angry with him/her, but to let your child express what he/she is feeling to you through talking. I'm a single mom and it's tough to actually listen to their feelings sometimes, but it truly helps them to know that your there for them to talk to even at this early age.
