My 13 year old son goes to the bathroom so frequently; it is a distraction to others and a hinderance to group events as we are waiting for him so we can leave, eat dinner, etc. I noticed it beginning when he was in 3rd grade; his baby sister had just been born and we started homeschooling. at that time the dr. summed it up as anxiety over change and ordered multiple tests to be sure he was healthy otherwise - he is. this has continued for 5 years - it goes in spurts where it is more frequent (every 10 min) than other times. He realizes it's a bit unusual but neither he nor we know the solution to stop it. I love John's books and speaking engagements; I look forward to advice concerning this.
