My 12yr old Grandson still poops in his pants and pees in all places.

My 12yr old Granson has been pooping in his pants since he was 5yrs old. We have tried everything to get him to stop. We took him to all kinds of professionals. They all say it is a behavioral problem. We have tried the Miralax. and all. He also pees everywhere. Just today I found that he peed in my pantry and his closet. His room is right across from the bathroom and he says he couldn't make it and I get very upset with him. He lies about all of it and says he didn't do it but after my disscussion with him he admits that he did. He has a good life at home. He does leave with me and my husband along with his Mom and two siblings.

He is going to Middle School this year but the thing is he doesn't do it at school he only poops in his pants when we get him home from school. He has quit for a week when his Dad gave him money for quitting. I am just at my witts end on this. It has been a tough 7 yrs.

I can't imagine how difficult this all is *sorry*

Some serious intervention needs to take place here - - for your grandson's own mental health and the family.

Your grandson needs a top-notch Dr. to help him ASAP.

I will paste a link for you to explore, and then his parents need to find him help. With Soiling and Bowel Control&section=Facts for Families

Here is some general info. and a link to find a Child Psychiatrist:

This is not typical development and your grandson NEEDS intervention, far beyond what the family can give. I urge you to help his parents seek professional help for your dear Grandson.

I am happy to help with any other resources I can, or if you just need to vent, I am here.
Take care !!!!
