I am new to this site & I am desperate for your help. My son, who just turned 6, has been having bowel movement accidents for about 6 months now. He basically has "tracks" on his underwear that show that he needs to go. Nothing has changed as far as our rhythm goes at home so the only thing I can come up with is that he doesn't want to stop what he's doing to go to the bathroom. I have tried EVERYTHING as far as I know, from telling him he needs to poop when his body tells him so to getting so upset & making him clean himself up then regreting it afterward. He already has trouble going pee when he's fully engaged because he doesn't want to miss a beat so he wets himself. I know that is very "normal" for boys to do but the bowel movement situation doesn't seem "normal" to me. My husband & I are so frustrated & don't know what else to do at this point.
