Nicole F asks:

I work at a children's home. We have a 12yr old who will not stop pooping in his pants, mainly because he is too lazy to get up and go to the restroom. He will go all day with this in his pants. Despite the many lectures of how dangerous this is to him and others he just doesn't get it. Do you have any info on the dangers of this I could relay to him. I have been looking online for answers but cannot seem to find any!! Thanks





Nicole,

Thanks for the question!

Perhaps, just PERHAPS, a 12 year old living in a childrens home has some psychological issues that are impacting his toilet habits. It is usually far beyond me to take an issue seriously, but a 12 year old is NOT "too lazy" to go to the bathroom and just poop in his/her pants just for the hell of it. A pre-adolescent who does this has SERIOUS problems.

Psychological evaluation is in order, as is a concurrent bowel retraining program.

UPDATE 4/3/06 by Dave the Editor: The clinical term for this disorder is "encopresis." You should be able to find a lot of help if you google that term.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

-- Poonurse

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.

Got a question for her?

The first time I heard the comment "Don't knock it until you've tried it" was 40 years ago while teaching college. The kid who said it was obviously stoned on weed, and a classmate told him how stupid it was to come to class thus impaired. My reaction at the time was, "I've never tried death by atomic explosion either, but I know enough to avoid it if possible." As for Knux, I obviously can't stop you from indulging your habit; however, pants-pooping has enough obvious and rational objections that I certainly never hope to follow your example. Sharting (very rare for me) is bad enough, and cleanup with toilet paper after a normal sit-down bowel movement is trouble enough. I simply cannot imagine how awful it would be to have to clean up my clothes and myself after pooping my pants. No, I haven't tried it, but I don't need to.

To the AC above the 3 year old, I find it fucking sad that you can't spell as well as 12 year old, or even a 3 year old.

Duct tape the (not so little) bastard's ass shut until the buildup of poo in his colon reaches a critical level, and then offer to take it off once he plants his nasty ass firmly on a toilet seat.

sis, you have to remember that Poopreport is a website dedicated to poop humor, so there are always going to be replies made in jest. We know this is a touchy topic.

If your sister is seven and a half years old and still pooping her pants - even though she's put on the toilet every half hour - it sounds like she's doing so on purpose. She may feel control over the rest of the family, she may have a mental problem. It's really hard to say with such a small amount of information. Has you mother or father taken her to see a doctor? This should be done first to make sure that I'm not wrong, that there is something physically wrong with her. After that, if the doctor says "no trouble here", then one of the best things your parents can do is to make her responsible for her own mess. When kids have to deal with their own soiling, sometimes it stops. Look at it this way - if she's pooping her pants, and then she gets cleaned up and someone else rinses out her underwear, and there's no restrictions, she really has very little reason to stop.

Although this is a risky suggestion to make (because remember, we don't really know why she's doing it yet), talking to your mom about this type of action might help. If sister has to rinse out her own undies, clean herself up on her own, and it's done in a manner that she owns her mess, it might be all that's needed. If she's doing this for attention, ask her if she feels ignored. Maybe if someone listened to her or played games with her, she'd feel better about herself and wouldn't go to extremes to get attention.

Whatever. First and foremost, try to get your mom to get her to a doctor. I know this is frustrating for you. Good luck.

I had a 12 year old foster child who pooped her
pants all of the time mainly for attention .
We spoke with her social worker about this .
She was then later hospitalized and then she pooped all over the bathroom floor at the hosptial, because she got mad at one of the nurses.
What a real delight she was.

Perhaps a butt plug would work

I am aghast at some of the comments made here..

Has anyone suggested Fecal Incontinence as a possible reason?
My son (now almost 14) has had problems with soiling since he was a baby. Not once have we made an issue out of it..It took 12 years to find out the answer as to why he kept on soiling and guess what, he wasn't doing it to get attention and he wasn't doing it because he was lazy, he had a REAL medical problem.
Lots of Dr's, teachers, school nurses said it was overflow..A Dr(Psych)ACTUALLY took notice of us and sent son to see another Dr. The Dr did an x-ray on sons tummy, he immediately found that our son was totally backed up and that without help our son would always be like this as his muscles had got used to the feeling, they were stretched and he was unable to empty his bowel completely, the Dr gave our son strong anti-constipation meds and a regime to follow, within months our son had stopped soiling and had regained muscle control.
Before all this our son was left in his poop by school (they said they couldn't help him as they didn't want to get in trouble).
Our sons confidence dipped, but like I said WE never made him feel like it was his fault. Please get help for children who have this problem it can be sorted.Don't make your children feel any worse than they are doing..thats when you get the behaviour issues and denial.

Just to say goodluck to all parents whose kids poop themselves. I have an 8 year ols with the same prblem. I have not taken hom to a doctor but i think i will after reading posted comments on this site. However, i still feel so angry and disappointed with my son because he does not seem to show any remorse at all. He has poop odour all the time, his hands smell poop, his clothes and the worst thing is he hides pants and trousers that eh has messed up. He shares a bathroom with his younger brother but the place is always messed up, from the toilet to the hand basin to the floor mats where he throwas his poop deposits when washing or changing, its pathetc and i am at my wits end, he is my first child so imagine the disappointment. I have even asked God why out of frustration and he dosent seem worried and even makes fun of it with our maid, in my absence. When you ask him why, he will not say a word but just look at you. I have tried spanking too but no luck at all. PLEASE HELP.

my son is 6 years old and seems like a perfectly intelligent kid. he has been having problems at school, mainly he doesnt seem interested at all but he is very intelligent. he understands the subject matter and scores very well on tests but is simply not very interested in participating.

lately he has beeen pooping his pants. he goes to the bathroom regularly but will sometimes stain his underwear.

i have to constantly ask him to go sit for a while and try to poop, but when he is at school i have no way of supervising him.

i am a single father, his mother sees him on weekends and my son seems well adjusted to the mothers boyfriend and kids.

i ask him why he does it... same answer. i dont know.

ive tried being understanding, ive tried being angry, ive tried teasing him, ive tried reasoning with him. he just keeps doing it.

lately i have him wash his underwear and shower when he poops at school. i am with him all day apart from the time he is at school.

i will probably buy him a game boy to play whenever he has to go sit on the toilet just to give him something positive to look foreward to.

i am reluctant to take him to a psychologist because i feel he is a normal boy with a normal situation and simply needs patience and understanding.

also i am reluctant to take him to a doctor as he is very regular, he goes maybe 3 times per day, sometimes twice.

the problem is his mother wants to get aggressive with this problem and thinks that by snapping her fingers it will all go away.

she wants to take him to see a psychologist to find out why he is doing this but i think that i simply need to be more flexible with him and allow him to do this without the stigma that i have been putting on him.

i will ask him if he wants kids to poke fun at him, when they smell him. i will sometimes get mad and ask him why he keeps doing this... what? again? i dont look very happy and he is bright enough to pick up on this.

anyways, i was looking for answers and what found is that there are no clear answers. my son is a very hyperactive fun loving kid, hes very intelligent and this is baffling me.

i am glad for this thread as i have been able to realize that i am not alone and that the best policy seems to be to practice understanding and acceptance, as well as patience.

it can be very frustrating but i guess i will try to give him rewards as well as spend more time with him.

he is taking gymnastics so i guess that will have to suffer for a while.

our schedule is very busy we have no time at all for fun stuff.

but i guess the price of having a well balanced kid is to make some sacrifices.

thanks for all of the replies. a few of you would do well to refrain from making silly comments but oh well, i guess its hard to hide stupidity and ignorance.

My daughter is 8.5 yrs old and she started pooping her pants at her dads. ( We split when she was 6mos old, so she can never recall us being together and the fact we live at different houses is how it's been all her life. We both got remarried when she was 2.) She started doing this a year ago. And has had periods of time where she does it for 2 wks then stops for 3 mos. She has never done it at my house or school. And her step-mom has always been very sweet and loving to her, she says she's always nice. So I don't understand why she only does it at her dads house.

I'm 37 and still shit my pants occasionally, although it's not been deliberate for quite some time. Usually it's a follow-through after farting too hard.

The last time I shat myself, I was standing up reading the magazines in the newsagents and felt the fart turn to liquid and run down my legs. I had to waddle to the public toilet two streets away, throw my underwear in the bin, wash the globules of oily shit off my trousers in the sink and dry them on that hot-air hand dryer. It took ages, and a guy came in while I was standing there naked from the waist down, trying to dry them. He didn't say a damn word, just went to the urinal, had a piss, washed his hands in the sink (the one I'd just been washing my trousers in), smiled at me and left.

Made me feel damn proud to be British.

My five year old has had a bowel continence problem most of his life. We might have had a six month break between giving up pull ups and pooping the underwear.

He has had extremely loose bowels his whole life - firming them up is what let us lose the pull ups at 3 and a half. He has NEVER had a problem with constipation.. and yet here I sit, treating his bottoms with pet accident enzyme stuff because otherwise his freshly laundered underwear and pants still smell like shat.

I don't have anything to offer - I'm considering the "clean kid protocol".. I just don't want to hurt my baby - either way, by not doing something or by doing too much.

Ugh.

I have a 10 year old son that has been pooping his pants since his father left and never came back. I have taken him to Children's Medical Center and when he was 6 years old, they told me it was all in his head and that he would out grown it. Sure they gave me Metimucil and all of those other types of fiber liquids for him to drink, but he still has the problem. We have tried everything. He goes to the bathroom constantly and he still shits in his pants and underwear. He has hidden it under the sink in the bathroom, under his bed. We used to make him carry his underwear and pants to the brook behind our house and wash them out, but that did not help either.

Now he refuses to wear underwear and the turds are just dropping where ever he feels like it.

I am just fed up...his grades are dropping and I have no clue what to do. He is the third child of four and the only thing I can think of is that his 16 year old brother is bullying him constantly. Either send the 10 year old to a group home or tell the 16 year old to move out since he refuses to stop bullying his 10 year old sister. I am just at my wits end.

If the 16 year old won't stop bullying his younger siblings, get him involved in something like Jobcore. You're the parent.

Frankly i think u all are nuts. I have an 11 year old who has that problem. No he has not been messed with sexually. No he is not too lazy and No he doesnt do it because he likes it. I have taken him to the Doctor and the Doctor said that he has a stretched colon and does not know when he has to go. So until you all know your fact and know exactly what you're talking about I don't think you should post something by just trying to make yourself look funny or to try to make yourslef look smart because technically you only look like an @ss

Actually, you are the one who looks like an ass, because in quite a few places on this thread we suggest getting the child in question to a doctor. Not only that, because your child had a stretched colon, you are assuming all the children in question here had stretched colons.

Lighten up. It's a poop humor site.

Hi i would like to say that i had the same thing when i was 12 years old . I felt left out of every-thing. At school and home .But the thing that got me bad is that i just could not go in to the toilet's at-tall.As that is school i did get bullied , They did hurt me bad.And it happend in the toilets all the time so i just did not go in even at home and i did not tell anyone as they said that it would get back to them and it bad for me. I did not stop till i was 16 years old . I had to wear diaper's to school till then , But i would not go to the toilet's till i was 16.I had a bad time .Then i got them all back big time .I got big and well they got it.So you should find out what is going on in your child life and help him.If it means diaper well do that it did help me till i got on with my life .Your child won't tell you anything. As he has been told not to teel or he will get hurt.Any-way good luck.

Nicole, hi I thought I'd share my story with you.. My sister got into a car accident and became paralyzed from the neck down. as time gone by, the hardship affect her 3 children, the 6yr old wet the bed, and sucked her thumb. One of the twin boys poop his pants, age 4. We thought he was lazy also did the doctor. NOTHING HELPPED!!! Now my sisters kids are grown. The girl still wets the bed, but only at times, and sucks her thumb as well.. The boy whom pooped his pants ended up gay, and still poops his pants... His respones is.. it feels good and gives me comfort, since my mom can't. If I could go back in time, I would have, frist and foremost hug him everyday, and sit in the bathroom and help him kindly. As any mother would, its just hard if it's not your child, but try, he'll be greatful later, and we all need hugs everyday....God bless you for helping others, it's hard on these poor child whom go through to much.

My son Billy, now grown and on his own started peeing and pooping in his pants again when he was 5 years old. I had just had another baby. He was jealous of the attention his new sister was receiving. I had a talk with him, and tried the you're a big boy speech, but he continued to do it, so I told him he could wear diapers for one week, but then he had to be a big boy again. It actually wound up being closer to 3 weeks, but he got tired of the diapers and said he wanted his big boy pants again. As far as I know he never had any recurrence. In truth, his wearing diapers was easier for me, than having to change wet or soiled underpants.

My 7 year old daughter uses the bathroom regurly with no problems,but once every few weeks she will just let loose and poop and pee in her clothes.She says she just did'nt want to stop what she was doing and go to the bathroom.this makes me crazy.How could she be so lazy that she can't take 3 minutes to go across the hall and use the toilet.The worst part is she won't even say anything.she will just sit in it,then i find poop on the rug or bed.I get so mad at her and threaten diapers if she does it again.weeks will go by and she will be fine,then all os a sudden she does it again.what can i do with her?I have a 5 year old also and he has never done this.

I was given a boy (age 10) who defecated in his pants at school daily. He told me that he could not control himself.I found inducing bowl movements at home preferable to cleaning up after his "uncontrolled" dumping in class at school. It was amazing, after just a few enemas, he figured out how to make it to the toilet and not go in his pants.

I'm a grown woman now, but when I was 3 years old I started shitting my pants. I had been potty trained for nearly 2 years without any problems, then all of a sudden I just started shitting my pants. My mom would get so angry and I was so ashamed of myself, but the strange part was that I couldn't even remember shitting. Its like I'd just be playing or sitting around, then all of a sudden I'd have shit in my pants. This didn't go on very long, maybe a matter of months, but it turned out that I was having a form of seizures. The seizure would come on suddenly and I would just sit there starring off into space and apparently shit my pants. There are hundreds of different types of seizures and they kind I had was very mild, but I would be unconscious even though I was sitting up with my eyes open. The shitting stopped, but I still have the seizures from time to time. Thank god I don't fully loose consciousness and don't shit. But I just remember feeling so bad and being so confused because I couldn't even remember the incident after it happened. Its like one minute I was just fine and the next minute I had shit in my pants. So for all you parents out there, please be sure to rule out medical conditions. After the shitting stopped during the seizures I started wondering off durning the seizure. I even wondered off from school one time. I remember sitting in class one minute and then all of a sudden I was in the parking lot. A lot of times people think of intestinal problems or psychological problems, but it could be hundreds of things causing the shitting in pants. In my case it was my brain waves going crazy for a minute. I know a lot of kids shit and stuff like that just because they are evil little pricks, but don't be hard on them until you rule out other possibilities.

Really? some of you people are assholes to some of these people, and i dont mean the people saying that the 12 year old or other kids who poop their pants were sexually abused cuz that is just a possiblity and we're tryin to help. but the ones being assholes are the ones who mock the ones who do iton purpose(for fun) rather if they are a teen or some 30 yr old(who said he was succesful in life too) you have no right to mock on them its their choice if they like it and you dont, tough shit!(no pun intended) and even some moms(or aunts or sisters watever) who say they are fed up with they're lazy child if its already proven to not be a medical condition and they dont give a shit(about using a toilet to shit)and you are mad at them just because you dont like it, then really sit down and ask them about TRULY why they do it, cause face it some people just like to shit(or piss) in their pants, or diaper or whatever
and no im not one of those people who enjoy shittin themselves(although ive noticed when i pee i somtimes orgasm..weird,and i admit to peeing in the shower) but i could care less what other people do in their pants and it(in 2 ways) is their own business
and dont throw this to the wind after i write it really let it sink cause really if your gonna be that much of an ass to these people you have your own problems, and yeah i know im gonna get a thing in green above this comment saying:"Lame Comment!" but like those people im not looking for your approval

I am so happy that people can joke about this subject, frankly. And yes, sometimes, you do just want to beat the hell out of your children and it is good to blow off that steam in a post. I have a 7 year old foster child that I adopted 3 years ago. She poops her pants, hides the poop around her room (where her baby brother has access to it), sits around in her poop half the day and doesn't clean herself up and pees the bed every night on top of it. I have taken her to the doctor for the last 3 years on this issue with no help - just tell me to use miralax. The only thing that worked to clean out her colin was suppositories/enemas and timed sits on the toilet. But I stopped doing this because doctor was not supportive and I was afraid of being accused of being abusive because she would tell people about the enemas (which was almost as embarassing as her constantly shitting her pants in public and the horrible smell). NOTHING has compared to the horror of living with this situation. So until you've lived with a kid that does this, stop being so judgmental.

My 12 year old nephew has stated that he doesn't want to stop what he is doing cause he is having too good of time to go poo. So he holds it in till the feeling goes away. The reason the feeling goes away is cause he shit his pants! Another part of this story that bothers me is that even after he has pooped in his pants he continues to play and sit and never even notices that there is crap in his pants. I really don't understand this and need some help. HELP ME!!!

Dear AC: I had a neighbor whose son consistently shit in his pants for basically the same reason. This was back in the days of hand washed clothes so his cure was simple. His mother saved all his shitty clothes, gave him a scrubbing board, lye soap and a galvanized washtub full of warm water and told him to get busy. He was cured very rapidly.

Honestly, if you're getting on a humor site and asking for help with a serious problem, you might want to reexamine your own priorities.

I was a medical orderly for some three years (paid my way through college!), and I got shit on or had shit thrown at me by so many people (some of whom had real physical and mental problems, yes) that the only coping mechanism I had was a sense of humor. And some of the stories were just funny (like the coke addict who smeared shit on herself and demanded SUGAR!!! all night with really startling energy and persistence, or the dope addict who politely warned us that he was 'about to spew out of both holes' before detonating).

If I'd denied myself the release of laughter to accommodate your desire for other people to take you seriously and do your homework for you, I would have blown my brains out.

So, yeah, sometimes kids shit themselves. You think we're bad? You should hear the peds nurses who have to deal with it every day. And the doctors are no better, in case you suffer under the misapprehension that a medical degree makes them magically more 'polite'.

So lighten the fuck up, people. And when it's all over and Junior is shitting neatly in the toilet, polish up your story and post it.

AC, by and large, Poop Report finds the humour in every shituation. Sufferers of various conditions have shared their stories because they HAVE to see the funny side and have shared many thousands of tales for our amusement, as have their families, carers and those administering medical care.

You are right to an extent, that people should lighten up, write their story and post it. In fact, this site relies on people such as yourself, who may have amusing poop-related stories to tell from an occupation which no doubt incurs many such encounters. Perhaps you could join up and share them. I for one would love to hear more about the "Sugar!" gentleman, for example.
.
However, PR has it's serious side too. It might be a site for poop humour, but it's wealth of data, popularity and the fact that people talk very openly on here about something which is generally a social taboo, have meant that people also come on here because they need help.

Put yourself in their position and try something for me. Imagine that you are someone with a shit-related problem. Anything will do. I dunno... "my husband shits the bed" for example. Now type those words into Google, or whatever search engine you like. I would be very surprised if there isn't at least one link to Poop Report on the first page. Actually, I've tried it just now. It was 6th on the list. How about something else... say, "my ass is leaking"? ... Ah, here we are... 2nd and 3rd. Your turn.

Humour site or not, if people are searching about something that worries them, they'll end up here. There aren't many places on the web to talk about it so by discussing their issues here they can be be virtually guaranteed a response, if not help, advice, sympathy or reassurance.

I'm sure that if someone was searching well enough they could find medical advice on the net without having to discuss them on our pages, but mate, this is the first place people come across that answers the uncomfortable or humiliating questions and goes into sufficient gruesome detail. Unsurprisingly, people frequently find help here. They join up and share. They even find friends, or at least a welcome audience, so whether these folk should or shouldn't be discussing medical issues or seeking help on a humour site, we're glad to have them.

Poop Report has saved lives my friend, and regardless of whether the site should have that responsibility, it's got it. If the thread that you are reading doesn't amuse you, well, there'll be plenty that will, just a mouseclick away.

ES: That's a fair assessment. I recognize that people come here for reasons other than a giggle, but there is an element of perspective to this: it's not a professional environment, it's a site on the internet, where people let their hair down. People are going to say and do all kinds of crazy shit, some of which might offend your delicate sensibilities. I'm pretty worried about the recreational pants-shitting subculturists, for example - I've had to help clean (I lifted the poor guys and gals for the nurses) pretty grody thigh, genital and buttock infections from that kind of stuff gone wrong, and I'd rather not hear about it.

I'm also offended by clowns, gore porn, and libertarians, in roughly that order. So I avoid going places where I have to deal with those things.

If you want your personal issues dealt with respectfully and professionally by total strangers, go see an MD or a shrink. Otherwise, don't be surprised when people who've never met you fail to respect your boundaries. End of lecture.

Sadly the young lady with the cocaine dependency wasn't really much of a story - she came in aspirating, got a room and care, and I got called in to help restrain her when she woke up and flipped the fuck out (which is also when she nearly brained a nurse and smeared greasy coke-fiend feces all over her face and breasts). Then, I (a 6'4" guy who is well acquainted with the lifting of heavy stuff) actually had to call for help against this rail-thin 5'8" woman because she was totally fucking unspooled - biting, clawing, and kicking anything that came near.

Eventually we got her four-pointed (during which procedure we both ended up utterly beshitted), and she proceeded to scream her head off all night long. Among other things, she was constantly demanding sugar. We had to move her so the other patients could get some sleep, and she finally passed out from exhaustion just as the sun was coming up.

I bet she's still out there somewhere.

Good point AC, and because it's not a professional environment, people shouldn't really get upset if people make fun of a distressing situation. But they do. And the people still come here. I think that generally, the regulars of this site will treat most things light-heartedly but recognise when someone is seriously upset and try to respond accordingly. As I said, it's not the ideal place to find solutions or diagnoses and a medical professional should always be consulted, but Poop Report is kinda stuck with these sort of enquiries and although I speak as only a contributor and not an official rep of the site, I like to think that we try to point people in the right direction. That direction, most of the time, is towards someone suitably qualified.

I wish I hadn't asked about the sugar lady now. That sounds quite horrific.

Why not register and share some stories that amused you? Unlike most anonymous cowards you actually sound as if you have things to say.

ES: Yeah. My suspicion is that the people asking after said direction has been given are looking to avoid actual medical care for financial reasons. Which, I'm here to tell any of you who may be out there, is a recipe for delaying the problem until it's worse (IE, even more expensive to deal with).

95% of my poop stories are personal (hiking and camping stories), so I'm not sure I have much to add. Most of the fecal incidents from work were just repetitive - I mentioned She Who Could Not Be Controlled because it was funny once I got to shower and rest.

Incidentally, the genuinely horrific stuff was not shit-related. I think the thing that really knocked the shit out of me was an orphaned double-amputee (left arm above elbow, right leg below knee) girl who just wanted someone to talk to when she woke up in the middle of the night.

I'd gladly wrangle shitting, screaming coke fiends for the rest of my life if I never, ever have to look in that girl's eyes again and tell her it'll be okay.

Well we love all poop stories here mate, so whether it's stories from work or hiking and camping tales, so long as it's poop-related, we'll be happy. We have many hiking and camping tales, so the more the merrier!

But yes, many people come on here for advice because they can't afford a doctor. Again though, our advice is to see one anyway, even if it means going to the emergency room. But much of the time it's people (especially young people) who are too embarrassed to talk to anyone, whether it's a doctor, a friend, a parent or even a partner. They need reassurance mainly, particularly kids. Reassurance that there is nothing to be ashamed of, they are not abnormal, that they are unlikely to die from it and that their parents will not be angry or assume that he/she has been indulging in certain sexual proclivities or recreational habits. That, and that the doctor has seen it all and can actually help, whether it's confirmation that the problem is a minor or a major one.

It's ironic that advice or guidance or support on such serious matters should be given by a site that's essentially comic, but I don't think it's professional advice that most of them seek from us. What they desire is a humanitarian response, and for the most part I reckon they get it.

I feel for you with that girl's situation. That's truly awful. There's nothing I can add to it, other than that I hope I never have to deal with that situation myself, and I take my hat off to you for it.

I don't know what to do with my 10 year old son. He has been pooping in his pants for the last 5 months. I don't know why he has started doing this. He tries to lie about it when we ask him. He always has a excuse but I feel it is pure laziness. I just started making him wash out is underwear with the hose. I need help or advise if anyone has it for me. I am just sick of this it is nasty and gross. I don't know what to do but it has to stop.

Shantele, it is possible it is serious like he got molested. You can have the dad talk to him about it. If it is not molestation, take him a psychologist who is specialized in children. You caan start with his pediatrician and let him/her refer you.

Well, I say pediatrician needs a call. ADHD can be another reason for bathroom problems. There's the seizure thing someone brought up before too. Infection? Pin worms? Yeast overgrowth?
Never let him resume the fun thing he was doing that caused him to be 'lazy' in the first place. Or do like the Dog Weesperer, fifteen minutes after the big meal, make him sit on the pot til he poops. Let him read a book.
You could go to the extreme and put in a HD TV, VCR, DVR, kareoke machine in the bathroom. He could stay on the commode doing what he does anyway and we'd have potty success the natural way!
They also have potty training videos you can rent for free at the library. Make him watch "He's a super-duper pooper" five times a day every day. By day three or four his ears will be bleeding and surely he will confrom to social standards. If not, resort to previously mentioned enemas every day so that there will be no errant poops to destroy any clean underoos.

The answer all DEPENDS ! If he still poops, I suggest calling the Jerry Springer Show to see if they need a new topic other than, He Ain't my Real Father.

Hello all I have a 7 yr old son who has ADHD,PDD and ODD. He poops his pants almost everyday, i am at my wits end on what to do. my husband his step dad is really getting angry with him. when he was 5 we broke him of pooping his pants for a while by using cold showers then my current husband went to jail and it started all over again.. now its been 4 yrs and he's still pooping. its not all the time. i know he has large bowel movements and i have had him on perscription laxtives. i read what has been said above i think i am going to try the enima route, but does anyone have any other ideas. could this be caused from his medical problems he has? i have asked that of the drs and they say they dont know.

Get a second opinion. If a doctor doesn't know, then you can ask another doctor, maybe one that your current doctor can recommend who has experience with kids with the types of behaviors with which your kid has been diagnosed. In the meantime, does he or you clean up the mess? I've heard from a few parents that when the child has to do his or her own clean up, the incidents sometimes slack off or stop altogether.

Enemas might make his problem worse.

Best of wishes to you. I can only imagine how frustrating it is to have to deal with poop all the time.

I can tell you some horror stories about kids shitting their pants. I've got a 15 year old (soon to be 16) who craps himself, wipes it on his sheets or walls, hides the shitty underwear after he's sat in it all day, walks around stinking like sewage and thinks nothing of it.

He's been on Miralax, bathroom regimens, gotten enemas, had reward systems...nothing worked. At first the doctors told us he was just lazy, then we got a second and third and fourth opinion with the same diagnosis. He's been institutionalized and under constant doctor supervision and he still shits his pants. Still, we have never gotten a definitive answer on why he does this. No one knows despite years of treatment.

He clearly has mental health issues and has never gotten treatment for what might be going on in his head. The doctors just treat it from a physical aspect. He's been to three institutions, five therapists, and we've had countless conversations with all these people about how serious this is.

It seems to me that the truly mentally ill have a hard time getting treatment of substance. I've heard other horror stories from other parents who deal with the same bullshit. Frustrating isn't the word, it's maddening.

For some, pooping or peeing in ones pants is their only outlet of control in their enviroment. This control mechanism allows them a feeling of self satisfaction that is difficult for them to find else where. This view is not shared or acceptable by societies norms and but keeps the individual separate and unique. These individuals without legitimate medical diagnosis tend to have higher I.Q.'s and a strong sense of individuality and self. A child that poops or pees in their pants need the support of their caregivers and not punishment, remember these kids have been potty trained and are reverting to a safe place in their lives for a reason and their limited experience denies them them the ability to communicate why this is occuring to them. Supply the child with disposable underwear that he or she can use by them selves and if the mess is to much for the adult to handle, teach older children to do their own laundry. Give the child love and support and the tools and time they need to work through the issues at their own pace. This will give you and the child inner peace of mind and remember, rewards do work, but do not take them away from the child as a form of punishment.

Sincerely Christopher

P.S. I have personel knowledge of this and I do not see it as a negative.

12 years old and still pooping in his pants...that's not laziness that's something else. It's a cry for attention of some sort. I say make him clean it up...it'll turn him off.

And as far as holding it in...my little brother who is now 21 used to poop his pants until he was 7; it was because he didn't want to miss anything.

I have a 3 1/2 year old now that likes to take dumps in the tub. My family is full of deviants in the poop dept.

Thats nothing my friend Will is 24 and he still poops his pants on the regular "my man" if he wasn't so funny I'd mos def rip on him on the regular. That plus I've I'm kinda afraid he'll grab a lil some some from the rear and throw it at me. I've seen him do it, NOT DELICIOUS.
