The M.O.P. Book: Anthology Edition: The Proven Way to STOP Bedwetting, Daytime Enuresis, Encopresis, and Chronic Constipation in Toddlers Through Teens


“Dr. Hodges’ takes out the shame and offers updated, science-based advice.” -Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D., co-authorof The Whole-Brain Child

“M.O.P. works radically better than anything else.” – James Sander, M.D., Pediatric Urologist, UT Health, Rio Grande Valley, Texas

“M.O.P. saved my sanity and my daughter’s self-esteem.” – Marta Bermudez, Sugar Land, Texas

Dr. Steve Hodges’ comprehensive manual for treating bedwetting, daytime pee accidents, and/or poop accidents has been overhauled, expanded, and updated! The M.O.P. Anthology is for parents who are tired of waiting for their child to “outgrow” accidents or exhausted from the Miralax merry-go-round — parents who think they have “tried everything.” The new guidance in the 5th Edition will help parents resolve enuresis, encopresis, and chronic constipation more quickly, effectively, and permanently.

Parents call M.O.P. “life changing” and “a life saver.” Doctors call it “incredibly effective.” M.O.P. stands for the Modified O’Regan Protocol, a regimen named for Sean O’Regan, M.D., a pioneer in enuresis/encopresis research. The 4-phase protocol, combining enemas and laxatives, has been modified by Dr. Hodges, Professor of Pediatric Urology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Published research shows M.O.P. is far more effective than medication, bedwetting alarms, or laxatives alone. And no, enemas do not cause “dependence” or emotional trauma.

M.O.P. is based on a simple, proven fact: enuresis and encopresis are caused by chronic constipation — not “deep sleep,” an “underdeveloped bladder,” urine overproduction, stress, attention-seeking, or behavioral disorders. In reality, stool piles up in the rectum, aggravating the bladder nerves. Only when the rectum is cleared out daily can it shrink back to size, stop bothering the bladder, and regain the tone and sensation to full evacuate daily.

The Anthology 5th Edition covers the research supporting M.O.P, the 5 different M.O.P. variations, supplies needed, pros and cons of different enema and laxative products, and success stories/advice from parents in Dr. Hodges’ private Facebook support group.

Highlights of the 5th Edition include:

•Multi-M.O.P., a new protocol for the toughest cases, ideal for teens/tweens

•The Enema Rescue Guide, strategies for helping kids overcome apprehension.

•DIY enema instructions. Save truckloads of money by making your own enemas.

•New guidance on tapering enemas/laxatives, to reduce the risk accidents will recur.

•Updated tracking calendars to monitor progress on M.O.P.

•Overnight oil enemas for fecal impaction.

•Bladder Botox, a highly successful surgical procedure.

•Autism and accidents. Why chronic constipation goes overlooked and undiagnosed in autistic kids.

•Managing family tension and frustration related to accidents. Guidance from psychologist Amanda Arthur-Stanley, Ph.D.

•Updated Physician’s Guide to M.O.P. How to get your M.D. on board!

NOTE: Guidance in The M.O.P. Anthology 5th Edition supersedes advice in Dr. Hodges’ first book, It’s No Accident, also written with veteran health and parenting author Suzanne Schlosberg. Dr. Hodges and Suzanne also have collaborated on five books for children: Bedwetting and Accidents Aren’t Your Fault, Emma and the E Club, M.O.P. for Teens and Tweens, Jane and the Giant Poop, and Dr. Pooper’s Activity Book and Poop Calendar for Kids.
