I just wonder if the ppl that say its medical and punishment is only gone 2make it worse have ever been through it? Cause I have and still am and it is not that easy! My son is 12also I do have him in therapy and have tried everything and he is still messing himself! When you have tried everything else it is only logical 2 consider punishment as a tool especially if it seems 2 work. If he can control it long enough to get the punishment taken away then he can control it! My son is the same he will sit in it till it falls out his pant leg or someone smells it he has behavioral problems he has ADHD, odd, and rad not 2 mention bipolar disorder and is on many meds I know for sure that he is doing it for attention cause he leant do it everyday and he will never do it at school cause he dosent want peers 2 know he does it if he can control it in school he can control it all the time!View Thread
