I mean... in d mrg.. he goes for pass urine then ...every 1 min he says suso... but he doesnt do.. again he says and I tk him... but still he doesnt do (I know he wont do as he hasn taken water/liquid... but on his request I tk him to the loo) I dont know whether he feels n unable to do OR he goes just for fun OR immitating some other child OR my observation is right. he goes to Summer camp and I checked from his teacher... she too said he goes quite frequently and but he tk water too. My son unable to communicate properly.. so he cannt express problem to me. Pls suggest me is it matter of concern? Wht cud be the reason?

Hi AM! Please check has he ever been embarrassed or scolded for passing urine in pants either at home or in school. Or has he been scolded or teased for some other reason. Also try to recollect since when has the problem begun and any new event which has taken place in his life. It could be due to some issue which is disturbing the child or it could be also due to urine infection. Pls look for other signs like colour of urine, itching, pain etc. if u note any such sign pls go for urine test.

Hey AM, this is a situation you will be able to handle. May be when this incident happened, your child was made fun of and scolded as well, as Shikha mentioned above. Tell him a funny story about a boy who would go to the loo often but nothing would happen, and in doing that he would miss out on a lot of fun. Make up few stories, Perhaps distract him when he wants to go every few minutes since you know that he doesn't need to go. Even though he cant share much , he would be able to answer your questions about the incident, which will tell you what exactly happened. Dont worry, this will pass. tc

I believe it's this embarrassment which has made him be so conscious. Do not worry it will phase out. U just need to relax d child regarding this issue. N tell him thru story as Shanaya suggested tht it is perfectly normal for such accidents to happen. Also it can happen with anyone. He seems to be a sensitive child. So need of d hour is to comfort him n make him take this whole incident as lightly as possible. N teacher's help is Also required in the case. U can share with her the plight of d child n tell her to go easy on this issue.
