76% of Teachers Fall Short on Helping Students with Toileting Problems

When I was a kid, I steered way clear of the school bathroom. If you tried to poop at my elementary school, students would bang on the stall doors, try to pry them open, or throw wet paper towels at you. If you had to pee during class, the teachers would say, “Mr. Hodges, you will need to hold it until recess!” So I became a master holder, a habit that set me up for major constipation — and a career as a pediatric urologist. Given the extent of my constipation, I was lucky I never had an accident in school, but many of my patients aren’t so lucky. As the new school year gets underway, I can tell you this: Nothing is more mortifying for a kid than having poop drop out of his shorts on the gym
