There are various reasons why children may wet their pants.

Children often don't want to stop their activities to use the bathroom so they try to wait until the last possible minute, often unsuccessfully.

If the child is recently potty trained, they may lose the motivation to keep using the potty if they're not being rewarded or given extra attention any more.

There could be some emotional stress going on, such as a new sibling or a death in the family, to cause a child to start wetting their pants.

Perhaps there's a school bully making the child afraid to use the bathroom.

Whatever the cause may be, potty trained children who are wetting their pants should be checked by the doctor to rule out any medical issues.
