    I agree with Flacka on all fronts....if everyone backs off,
    the child may very well relax and be fine. School can be
    especially stressful for those that have not had previous
    experieces. When my own children experienced a new baby in
    our household, they didn't regress in their pottying, but the
    awoke in the middle of the night to pee more and as they got
    used to the new baby, it disappeared, but many children
    totally regress. I'm thinking going to school is every bit as
    traumatic as a new baby and the less attention paid to this,
    the better...he'll come back around. He may not have been
    totally trained for very long. Just be patient and
    understanding.
