I am clueless..is my son suffering from psychological issue

Posted , 2 users are following.

My son is almost 6. He is a bright, confident boy. Recently since 2 weeks he has started to urinate in different places at home in the corners of different rooms. He never did this before. He was potty trained when he was 3. Ive punished him, spanked him and communicated with him a lot of time. I have parents and brother who always shower endless love to him. Is he still feeling neglected? I thought i shared a bond wth him. I am single working women. I work part time, i got divorced when he was born. He doesnt know his father at all. Im wondering if he has questions in mind, how do i deal with him. Ive tried to being communicate with him a lot of times and tried to reason him. He is still doing it and i am very worried now.

    Hello, I would certainly take him to the GP and ask for advice, I am concerned that you say you have punished him and spanked him. WHY? I am not an expert but it sounds like a psychological problem. Is he like this at school, have you spoken to them? It could also be attention seeking, whatever it is he needs help. Please go to the GP asap.

    Best wishes.

    Elizabeth.

    Please dont punish or spank him. Take him to the gp and have him get looked at. Make sure his bladder and functions are okay. If everything checks out okay find out if he has observed this behavior maybe from watching tv or a pet. Ask him why he does this and if anything hurts. This is not something you would ounish a child for. Its not to be a bad boy there is something else going on. Did he get injured in the potty..something is not right.

    Is something going on? Any changes in his life like school or is the dad around. Is there a new baby in the family. Has he been checked for aspergers or other disorder like add.
