I could just cry ( in fact I have repeatedly). On of my sons is severely Autistic. He is potty trained but he poops in his pants as a behavior. He is non-verbal. He sometimes poops in his pants 4-5 times a day. He is 12 so aside from the laundry issues , its disgusting and disheartening. He has ruined 5 couches with his pooping or peeing. I have 3 other boys so its not fair to them that we have no furniture. I honestly don't know what to do. I can't be on my disabled son 24/7. So how can I have have furniture but not let my disabled son ruin it. I can't be on him all the time. I'm under enough stress. He is trained so doing every 20 minutes or 30 minutes to bathroom doesn't help. He just holds it until he wants to poop in his pants. Its a behavior that he has, there are months were he is fine and no accident and then BAM. I'm back in the poopy loop. I'm at my wits end. Any help appreciated.
