My 6 year old son has been potty trained for over 3 years but is starting to poo his pants. Help!?

My 6 year old son has been potty trained for over 3 years but is starting to poo his pants. Help!?

May be constipated: One of the most common reasons for pooping in his pants is the child is constipated, and has "overflow incontinence". If your child does not have a bm regularly, or is very quick in passing a bm, his large intestine may be full of poop, and he may be waiting until he can't hold it anymore. Check his stool pattern, and also find out why he is holding his bm's. ...Read more

I 27 year old boy my miss 26 year old 
 4 year completed in married but no baby no pregnancy?

Have you seen a dr?: If you have regular intercourse during the time of the month when your wife is ovulating for one year without conceiving, that is considered a fertility problem. I recommend you see a fertility specialist if possible. The problem could just be with the timing and frequency of sex, but if that is not a problem, then there could be an issue with either or both of you. Sometimes it is simple. ...Read more

How do I potty train a 3 year and 7 months old that has high anxiety ?

Toilet training: It is difficult to train an anxious child. Surely, he should not be coerced or forced to use the potty if he does not want too. Just back off for now and try again in a month or so. Giving rewards may also work when he is ready and willing, he will surprise you. ...Read more

I am potty training my 3 year old who has a strong personality.The only method that has worked is by having her naked. She still bed wets. Any advice?

I am potty training my 3 year old who has a strong personality.The only method that has worked is by having her naked. She still bed wets. Any advice?

Put her clothes on: If you have done rehearsal & she knows where the stuff is the best thing you can do is become her assistant, not her drill sergeant. A strong willed child must first understand when she gets the feeling she needs to go, & feel happy she is responding to that need.Telling her no more than twice a day that you will help is crucial. You can provide incentives for doing big girl things but relax. ...Read more

Parenting: Whether or not a third child would be a burden or not would depend on the structure of your family, your health, finances, capacity to give to three children, your health and the health of your significant other if one is present. Consult with a family therapist who can help you assess this very important decision. My best. ...Read more

My almost 11 year old daughter weighs 145 is that ok?

My almost 11 year old daughter weighs 145 is that ok?

No: Your daughter is obese. Without her height, I cannot tell you exactly how overweight, but unless she is over six feet tall 145 pounds is way too much. You both need to do drastic changes to your lifestyle. You should never buy soda, juice, junk food or white bread. What she has available to her will set her choices. She also needs to start a routine of exercise - suggest starting with daily walk. ...Read more
