Wetting Pants at School

Hi there

I am needing some advice my 9 yr old daughter wet her pants at school a month or so ago, she hasnt had an accident since she was 5 years old and she doesnt wet the bed. The teacher rang me and asked me to come down to the school, she explained that my daughter had asked to do to the bathroom and she had said yes straight away when she didnt return after 5mins she sent another girl to go check on her and of course the girl came running back in yelling shes wet her pants, much to my daughters embarrasement. I asked my daughter what happened and she just said she couldnt hold on. I thought she is a bit old for this and should be able to control it but let it go. Since this issue she has started wetting her bed and had wet her pants 1 other time when at ballet. (this time she wasnt allowed to go to the toilet straight away but only had to wait 5 mins). I have had her to the doc twice and eliminated urinary tract infect and we have had no big events or up heavals, does any one else have a child who has had an accident at school... how did you deal with it??? Thanks

I have a 7 year old son, who has had similar problems,first when the school year started. I talk to my children about everything & found that his teacher was bullying him. REALLY? For the longest time i couldn't figure it out until it began through him to me, in his agenda. Then last week i get a call saying he had an accident at school. (never b4) I went & found him crying in the bathroom & no clothes. He said the teacher wouldn't let him go until his work was finished. Things in school have changed beyond my imagination, so much. I now volunteer to make sure my child is safe & not verbally abused. You'd be surprised!

Diapers for your son and the woman's daughter. No more worrying about kids making fun of them. For a girl they are easy to hide by her wearing a dress boys it's a little different just buy his slacks and shorts one size larger. I know what you are thinking but I have been in diapers for 64 years. Give the kids hope and stop them from worrying about having peeing accident.

If he as no idea he's wetting till his cloths are wet then he may be like me. I have no idea I'am wetting until my diapers are soaked. Do you wear diapers on him? You need to protect him. Don't let the kids make fun of him I know how very cruel kids can be. So please protect him till you figure it out he may have to wear a diaper for ever. Make him feel your love and you care about him.

I understand why your daughter has been having accidents. She had one and now is so worried she will have one again, she always asks to go to the restroom. The teacher probably thinks she's faking it and just wants to get out of class. The teacher wont let her go and she thinks she will wet herself. Mind over matter she does. You need to have a talk with her teacher and tell her your taught needs to be able to use the restroom whenever she needs to.
