I use to pee my pants on purpose till I was about 10 years old not because I couldn't control my self but simply because I was having too much fun and didn't want to miss out on anything that I didn't feel like going home to use the toilet so I would just pee in my pants. I doubt it was my mothers fault considering out of 4 children I was the only one with the problem. Just laziness on my part.

If a child is peeing their pants on purpose, it's not about rebellion. If a child is in a new living environment, or under stress, or having problems of any sort, or in an environment where they are told what to do constantly, or an abusive home, they will usually pee their pants because it is the only aspect of their life and body that they can control. That is assuming that the child is old enough to have already been potty trained for quite some time.

Because sometimes they feel they need attention. Like if you tell her what she does, she might smile and like the attention. But if you ignore her doing it, she might be likely to stop. It all depends on how old she is. If she's older, she may be doing it because of bladder problems. But if she's younger like three or four or younger, she might do it because she likes attention, or just can't hold it and may need to see a doctor.

Kids may wet themselves on purpose because it feels good to them. I started wetting myself at about age 10, maybe sooner. At age 12 I started wetting my bed on purpose when I figured it would not be noticed. At age 13 my mother caught me peeing myself uncovered on my bed. She knew I had a pee fetish. It bothered nobody. There are many people (yes children included) with a pee fetish.

When i was younger i would say i would be 6,7,8 something like that. Mum got a new boyfriend and he did not like me and every time i was playing outdoors and i needed to pee, if i knocked on the door he would say if i came in now i would have to stay indoors the rest of the day. So i started off by peeing in my pants so i could play longer, the summer was easier as i had black nylon football shorts and they dried from the peeing a lot faster. Eventually i found outdoor places to pee.  Whilst i did sort of pee my pants on purpose it was for a reason you could call it convenience i suppose.

now i have a son of similar age, i have caught him peeing in his pants a few times. Mainly playing video games but some times at the beach he will pee in his speedos whilst playing ball or sitting in the sun. Then he will swim to rinse away the pee.  I used to do that a lot at the beach when i was his age.

Some kids cant help it. I peed a lot because I have adhd so when i was little I would just keep doing what I was doing but pee in my pants so I wouldnt miss out.

My 4 year old son just started peeing on himself. I know he does it on purpose b/c he doesn't have the "accidents" at school. I think he's doing it b/c it feels good, but I have no idea what to do to stop him from doing it.

Is she still wearing disposables or training pants? If so, take her shopping and show her the big girl panties, with Barbie or whatever on them, real pretty ones like bigger girls wear. Promise to buy her some to begin with, and when she can go to the bathroom properly, tell her that she can have/wear them, but if she has an accident than she must go back to baby pants. Yes I have seen young children pee on themselves for the fun and attention and control issues. Kids will be kids. Each child is different too, and each responds differently to potty training. As a Daycare provider[past] I know this and as a Mother, I am certain of it. The age at which a child is trained is right at the age when the child is in a flux about independence and control. Keep trying and may the force be with you!

I think they do it on purpose to get some sort of attention. My niece was potty trained at 2. Then her new sister was born when she was 2 and 1/2, once she was born my niece started to pee her pants again. She finally grew back out of it, but I think it was for attention.

I know that kids pee in the bed on purpose because my step-daughter has peed in the bed everynight for two years and when we ask her why is she peing in the bed she says because I'm too tired to get up. Her father and I know she is doing it on purpose. When we wake up in the morning and she has peed in the bed she will say "I peed" like its not a big deal. We are getting so tired of it.

This could be to get attention or as a type of rebellion if the child is indeed doing it on purpose.

They do it to get attention-mabey taking them to buy something specal and giving it to them when she/he does'nt pee their pants and take it away when she/he does pee their pants. Or there could be a bladder problem

I think it could be any of those reasons. It all depends on the child. If your child is peeing on purpose though because she don't feel like getting up, then I say it as much your fault as it is hers. When my son did that I woke up three times a night to wake him up and make him use the bathroom. He stopped wetting the bed and figured out that waking up at night every once in a while was better then three times every night. Your daughter is lazy, but so are you.

Actually Kids do not pee on themselves on Purpose. It is because either you have not trained them properly or because they still have not got that bladder control which is necessary for holding the pee till they get to a toilet. I would recommend you to spend some more time on her and train her properly. Change your method if possible. And it might work.

This is a wrong answer, my 3 year old daughter is potty trained, and she pees on purpose I know this because there were no mistakes at all, until about a week ago and she started liking the attention she got and will smile when you address what she has done. I am very positive she does it on purpose!
