I have a student that is a very quiet, shy 6 year old K student. The first couple of days of school were fine and then the next couple weeks the child has wet himself several times throughout the day. He has gone to the bathroom many times and often encouraged to go try. His mom finally put him in pull ups b/c it was happening so often. After that, he seemed to open up more and start to talk. Even become a bit of a jokester. I've seen nothing out of the ordinary to cause any undue stress other than beginning school. I don't think he has ever been to childcare or preschool. What might this mean and what can we do to help him? Thanks in advance!
