My son will be 10 in a few months and he is still having accidents. I am at the end of my rope. Nothing has worked as far as punishments. We have had him to specialists and there is nothing physically wrong. The closest we have come to finding a physical reason is that when he was six I was googling his problems and found a site about encropsis (sp?) This is when a child has gotten use to witholding fecal matter anf they have staining. We got this cleaned up and any time I have taken him to the dr he is not constipated but still has accidents. The dr said that he could have lost some of the tension in his colon and it may take a while to come back. That was 4 years ago. He is still having issues with peeing an pooping (especially when he is engrossed in something). The only solotion the dr could give me was ritalin. After having the prescription for 6 mos I finally tried it. It seemed to help and some of the issues at school got better (neater printing, remembering to pick up his coat etc.). I don't like him on medication does anyone out there have any ideas???
