My 3 year old and 6year old boys share a room. I noticed a smell of pee last week and thought my 3 year old had perhaps wet th bed so changed it but I could still smell pee so bought all new bedding new quilts and pillows but still the smell stayed. Then I seen my 3year old go into his room and pee!!! I was mortified and asked what he was doing!!! He told me his brother does this and says it's ok. I explained this is not ok what so ever!! So when my 6 year old got home from school I asked him and he has admitted peeing on the walls, on the beds, on the floor, just where ever!! I asked why on earth!!!!???? He couldn't give me an answer. I don't know what to do!! Why would he do this?

Has he had any trauma recently? Any big changes?

do you let them pee outside on walls/floors when caught short? Maybe he just can't see a distinction! Has he seen dad/others men pee in open?

I discovered my 6yo had been peeing in the plastic tumbler by the sink when the water tasted weird on a few occasions. He had no reason behind it. Guess it's entertaining when you've got a willy!

I remember twice climbing behind my dressing table and peeing. I have no idea why I did it, it just seemed like a good idea at the time. I was shocked when my mum noticed, couldn't understand how she found out, lol. I'd have been about the same age, as we moved house when I was a year older.

No willy here, either, I'm a girl.

Nope no trauma and nope I don't let them pee outside k make sure they use the toilet before we go anywhere. I just can't understand it

I did it for a while when I was about 7. We lived in a big pub and the toilet was at the end of a long shadowy corridor, and even with the landing light on I was scared to go to the toilet in the night. Mum realised what was going on after about two weeks. No willy here either.

Could it be that your son I scared to go to the loo in the night?

That's something I did as a young child and I think it was a combination of trauma and being scared of the hallway

Wow so it's not so uncommon! He's promised never to do it again but hey ho he said that about his cheek hmm

Are you leaving a night light on? We leave bathroom light on all night to help dc find the loo at night.

Do you tell him off or be ask him why he's up again if he gets up too much? I confess I used to, but my ds has autism and a lot of anxiety around going to the toilet. He did this for a time because he thought he would get into trouble if he kept getting up, he was only four though at that time and not yet diagnosed so I couldn't understand why he was getting up twenty times a night for the toilet.

Sorry I forgot to say he's been doing it during the day! We do always leave the toilet light on just incase any of them so he's been doing it through the day just for fun I guess!
