    My 15yr old will Pee in his room on purpose, will use clothes to wipe himself after going to the restroom, will go in his pants then us clothes to wipe himself and hide the clothes throughout the house. He has been diagnosed ADHD since he was 4. mother and I are going through divorce. he has had these problems his entire life, sees therapist and psychiatrist on regular basis. any thoughts?
    Louise_WebMD_Staff responded:
    Have you brought this up with the therapist?
    momuv4girls responded:
    I would say there is some serious issues here and if his "therapist" and/or psychiatrist have not helped him, or given you a plan of action, then some thing is terribly wrong.

    Have you sat with his Dr.s and explained what is going on??

    This is not just "typical" adhd.

    I would contact his Psychiatrist today and have a serious consult - - just you and his mother.

    Take care,

    This behavior is not related to ADHD.

    Please discuss this in depth with your son's therapist and psychiatrist.
    Confusedfather replied to Louise_WebMD_Staff's response:
    Yes the therapist is just as confused. the psychiatrist really cant reply to the issue. He has been to a Gastroneurologist(sry for spelling) he had build up that he had to get released. he see them again next week. The therapist we are working with says he has never heard of this in kids his age. My work let me go home and be with him to try and figure stuff out. He did get better but didnt completely stop. now that I left again he back to it in full.
    I agree with he comment that this isnt related to ADHD, I appreciate all the comments. I know this is more psychological for this web chat but I though I would give it a try. I'm giving everything i can a try. thanks Guys

    What does your son say about it? Anything?

    Is there something about the bathroom that feels dirty, uncomfortable, or unsafe to him? Does he have to share it with a lot of people?
