Default What could cause a child to suddenly start wetting themselves? – 12-28-2008, 08:43 PM

If a child never wets his/her pants at school and then suddenly starts doing it frequently, what could be possible reasons? The child has had this problem at home but is now doing it at school. There are not specific activities or times of the school day during which the child is doing it, and the child is not making attempts to ask to use the restroom.I am not the child’s parent. The child is nine.

There are many and there may be none but you need to get this child to someone that can help you figure it out. Does the school offer any testing or any couseling? He may have been through something that has triggered this and he is afraid to talk about it. I don’t want to upset you but it is your child and your gut must be telling you something, follow it. does he see his dad on weekends, a babysitter, any time alone with older children? Talk to someone. Good luck. I feel for you.

this is something you need to speak to the doctor about. it could be that he is just pre-occupied and doesn’t think about it or due to some kind of stress at school or something of that nature. hope this helps and everything works out ok. good luck.

You did not say how old the child was but something is going on here and you need to find out what it is. Each child reacts to things differently. Have you sat him or her down starting out very casual about school and what he enjoys /dislikes about it and go into say friends and what he enjoys playing with his/her friends. Once you feel that you have his attention bring up the wetting thing and see if he/she can tell you why they are doing this. Don’t confront be more like a concerned mom and make it a game. Get a calendar and some big red and blue stars tell them that they will get a red star for everyday that they don’t wet their pants and a blue star if they do. But I am sure you know one thing that the child LOVES to do as a reward. First start that he has to have 5 red stars in a row to get the reward and increase it every time he makes it.Make a BIG deal out of it bring his confidence way up!!! Pretty soon you will be well on your way to a dry child.Good luck this worked with mine.

How does the child react to change? Has something happened that may be upsetting him/her ? Sometimes children have a difficult time coping with change and symptoms of this are often bed wetting , wetting pants , anger , sadness or withdrawing from friends or family. This could be a physical problem but more likely this child is experiencing fear or uncertainty of some sort. Children, even when they are older often have difficulty expressing how they feel because they don’t know how to identify their feelings and link it to the source of that feeling. If something feels bad they might be able to tell you that they feel bad but they most probably can’t tell you why they feel bad …… they just feel bad and don’t know how to cope with that feeling.I think it would be wise for the parents to see their family physician and if they don’t get the help they need then maybe someone that specializes in child behavior could help. They have much experience with the way children react to certain things and I’m sure they can help to figure out what anxieties the child may be experiencing. Take care : )

well he/she may be under a lot of stress. (moved, some one died, a whole list of reasons) or it could be a medical condition and he/she cannot feel it at all.
