I'm a little bit worried about my daughter, she is 12 and in the last couple of weeks she has had two accidents at school. The first one I believe was down to a bad tummy and the teacher denying her second request to go! Luckily for her it happened in the last 10 minutes of the lesson and so she was able to get away with it as others thought someone else had trumped. Then the second time was yesterday at the start of her lunch break she was just walking out of class when she started to soil and wet herself, luckily no one was around to see it happen as she was able to make a bolt for the school door (she comes home at lunch time). She tells me that yesterday she knew she really needed the toilet but was trying to wait until her lesson was over and had to see the teacher as she had homework questions.
She seems healthy in both bowel and bladder, but is there anything that we should be keeping an eye on?
I've never heard of children having accidents in secondary school, primary yes (kind of the norm) but I'm really worried for her that it will happen again and she will get found out.
Has anyone else experienced school accidents at secondary school age with their child? Did you say anything to the school?
