Over the weekend we discovered our 9 year old son has been peeing all over the house, again! This happened 3 years ago when our second one was born. At that time we thought it was in reaction to the baby. Addressed it and he assured us he wouldn'y do it again. Well here we are three years later and he's at it again. Our 3 yr. old has been a handfull -- he is our spirited child and does turn the whole house upside down. I'll be the first to admit that. However, DH and I try very hard to spend alone time with both children. SO I'm at a loss as to why he's doing this.
It appears that he's doing this only when he's alone (i.e. watching TV or playing video games by him self). We have 3 bathrooms in the house, all in close proximity to where he watches TV and plays video games. When asked why he was doing this again, he said he did it b/c he didn't want to miss his programs or be away from his games. We asked him if there's a bigger issues (i.e someone asking him to keep a secret, someone bullying him, someone touching him etc) and were met with an empahtic no! We told him that its OK to tell us with no fear of him getting in trouble, but he insistis there's nothing bigger going on. We asked if he felt that we were spending more time with his younger brother, again he said no. Bottom line is, he said he was doing it b/c he knew he could get away with it (for the time being).
My husbad and I are beside ourselves... Our biggest fear is that there IS something bigger going on and he's not telling us. HELP...what could this possibly mean?!?!?!?!
