Wetting Pants - 8 yrs old

Needing a little help here.

DS is 8 yrs old and still wets his pants. I'm thinking it's just that he gets so busy that he forgets or maybe he doesn't recognize the sensation that he has to go until it's too late. He doesn't wet a whole bunch at once. It's almost like he releases just enough, let's it dry, then does more.

He gets incredibly embarrassed and I try to let him take care of it without me saying anything. Other times, we're going out somewhere and I just don't want him to smell like urine.

When we are out somewhere and he says he has to go, he really has to go!! I know he has waited as long as he could.

He's even come home with his pants wet, but never has he said a teacher of kid has noticed.

Anyone else have these issues?

I'm sorry that I won't be too much help but I do sympathize with you.
