7 yr old son peeing in inappropriate places

My 7yr old 2nd grader has been caught 2x peeing on the walls in the bathroom at school.  He also peed on another child's hand today.  He is also having similar issues at home.  How do I make him stop???

Hey Tootles,


I would take him to the doctor and probably to a counselor of some sort too---it is not normal behavior for a child to be acting out like this---has something happened recently that might explain his behavior?


I would seek professional help for sure about this one.






Does he always have an audience when he is doing this. I know he must have had when he peed on someone's hand. Maybe an extreme way of getting attention but it is working. Not something which is easy to ignore either. Perhaps you could make him clean it all up when he does it. Make him scrub the floor and walls every time and he may just decide it's not worth it.
