Toilet issues

Amazing after one week

After a week I saw results. ‘C’ had begun a fear of going to the toilet for his bowel movement. He used to hold on with all of his body, shaking and on holiday was pressing his face on the patio window to stop it coming out. He held on for weeks and would scream when ever I tried to help him- he was absolutely terrified!!!

He ended under a paediatric consultant as it was affecting his health and he was in extreme pain. He was put on medication but still was terrified as if it was becoming worse. He started school and was having a lot of accidents and he couldn’t socialise and would not play as was stood in a corner holding on. He couldn’t go swimming or play football – this fear was taking over his life.

I then alongside his medication started . I had already tried reasoning with him, comforting him reading books about toileting and playing with toys about toilet and reward systems. The nurse said I had tried everything possible.

Within a week of using the The Goulding Method –  ‘C’ was letting go, using his potty and was not scared. He now after about six weeks is going to the toilet himself and does it all alone and is no longer scared at all. He uses public toilets and school toilets without any fear- how amazing!

I thought this nightmare was never going to end and I still continue to do the foundation stage every evening. In fact with ‘C’ there was no need to go beyond this stage. He can now have a childhood like any other child enjoying socialising and going to school. What a miracle!!!!

No more dirty underwear  

Consultants Comments: “Very positive feedback again, the parents are satisfied. All marks of ‘I’ are in the positive range now, he has stopped pooping in his underwear for two weeks and shows further improvements. He is more self-confidence, stable feelings, great eating habits and he can handle his emotions better.

‘I’ has moved from a problematic and annoying behaviour pattern to a much more sociable, more well balanced state in general, with a lot of good feedback from the elementary school teachers and the parents as well.

Parents are calm now, less stress at home. The process has changed their attitudes too to ‘I’. He is more open, he is able to communicate his feelings.  His parents feel really close to him and ‘I’ is a very happy, well balanced boy. The stress about pooping in the underwear is over. No problem in kindergarten, no problem at home.”

Dealing with all issues

“Parents are over the moon with the results, in the last couple of weeks ‘B’ has only soiled him-self a few times and has started asking them if he should go to the toilet. He has shown improvements in basically every area of life.

 Some of the most significant improvements are in the areas of his eating habits, ability to deal with group pressure, ability to deal with issues and anger. His self-esteem has improved; he is much more confident and no longer hates school.

They are very happy with the result and if things continue the way they are they have resolved what initially brought them to me.”
