My 5 1/2 year old boy is having potty accidents weekly, what do I do?
He has been potty trained since about 3 years old and is very smart and responsible in every other way. As far as I can tell he has no physical reason for the accidents. He has always had issues on and off, but has gone several months in a row without a single problem, so I know that he can do it. I've tried everything and am currently working with him on incentives (he wants a pet fish) to stop what he is doing and go to the restroom. He doesn't seem to think it is a big issue, but it obviously is. Today he had an accident at preschool and then 3 more times at home! Please help!!! I'm looking online for answers, but am thinking I may need to make a doctors appointment to get to the bottom of this.
