12 and 15 year old sons still in diapers and incontinent?

  • My 12 year old son still needs to wear a diaper but he cant help it, we tried potty training but we just couldnt get through it and my oldest wet the bed his whole life. I feel really bad for my boy since hes always getting lots of grief from it and doesnt have many friends. Changing a big kids diapers all the time did get really tiring, he really hates wearing a diaper so i hope he can outgrow it some day, hes slowly getting better. I didnt know their were so many people who needed them until i saw this site. That makes me feel a lot better about having a 12 year old still wearing a diaper all the time and a 15 year old still in diapers at night because i almost feel like a failure because of it. Although without them he would be a completely different person. I just really needed to get that off my chest. Other Moms are always looking down on us even though its not my boys fault. If anyone wants to know more or just to chat about it, feel free to email me at whiteangie81@yahoo.com

    Then I thought .. children wear eye glasses and get (at least this was the case when I was young) teased and called 'four eyes'.  And you now can go on almost endlessly.  If a child has any deformity or is different in any way (perhaps an albino...

    "WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE!"

     

    Then I thought .. children wear eye glasses and get (at least this was the case when I was young) teased and called 'four eyes'.  And you now can go on almost endlessly.  If a child has any deformity or is different in any way (perhaps an albino skin coloring difference or birth marks or ..) .. the same teasing and mean-spirited-conduct towards that child happens.

     

    So it is NOT about the diapers!  What it is about is this mean-spirited human trait that we seem to possess as a species.

     

    So I encourage you to simply say .. "Damn-the-torpedoes full-speed-ahead and do what needs to be done."  No matter the difference (eye glasses or diapers or you-name-it!) .. the end result sadly will be the same .. inconsiderate and thoughtless and mean-spirited comments.

    My 12 year old son is still in diapers as well. We have decided to hold back on potty training for various reasons, he's asked a few times but he's not ready yet.

    I was back in diapers when I was 9 for the same reason.  Mom and doctor said, stop wetting yor pants or you will be put in diapers.  i honestly couldn't help it and found myself in Pampers day and night.  I was never dry at night and was daytime trained when I was like 6 and then not the best with dribbles abd post bathroom peeing.  I always had more come out after I finsied and was very careful, it just happened getting me in trouble and teased (in school).  I was always compared to little kids who were out of diapers, like that was going to help me.  Once they discovered my spina bifida, they stopped teasing me but it also meant I was in diapers forever.  Your son is also going through a lot and people forget about his feeling as he is wetting or messing in his diapers.  It's like "hey what about the kid here".  Adults annoy me with their perfect world and expectations.

      I had to wear diapers until I was 17 day and night. Does your son go to school in diapers.
