I feel your pain....I live with my boyfriend who has an 11 year old son who poops and pees his pants sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. He poops on the floor in the bathroom and also smears it on the walls. I have lived there for over 6 months and have to scrub the bathroom (and all the walls in the bathroom)everyday because I feel so horrible for my 16 year old son who has to share this bathroom. It is unbelievably disgusting. When I say anything to my boyfriend he makes excuses for him. He says he still sees him as a baby...The 11 year old is 5'9" tall and plays football. He is in the 6th grade. Just this past weekend we went to my sisters house for a birthday party and he pooped his pants and ran around the entire time with a full load in his pants. When he walked in the house it was so overwhelming that everyone had to go outside. I told his father that he had pooped his pants again...he told him to go to the bathroom and clean himself up. Well he didnt...he just went in there took off his underwear, dropping his feces on the floor and new rug, and put his pants back on. We had to ride home with the windows down and when we got home I made him take a shower but all he did was get in the shower, not using any soap and rinsed. Then dropped more feces that he failed to clean up at my sisters into the bathtub and leave it there. I also have a huge problem with his hygiene. Like I said we have lived there for over 6 months and he hasnt brushed his teeth the entire time. He never puts on deodorant so he reeks like there is no tomorrow. I have to physically get the deodorant and spray it on him. I am so ready to get out of this situation. i can not stand to be around this kid. My son is 100% miserable living in this situation. Everyday he is hiding or leaving his soiled clothes in his room or in the bathroom. He will even fling them up into his closet. I think he has serious issues but how do I tell his father I think he needs professional help?View Thread
