My daughter is 3 and a half, she will be 4 this upcoming August and she will be old enough to start preschool. Unfortunately she will not poo-poo in the potty. She did it one time when she was about 2 years old, and it scared her half to death. She freaked and started crying and every since then, she poops in her pull-up or even in her big girl panties! What gets me is that I know she knows the concept and knows when she is about to poop. She even asks me, "Mommy are you pooping?" when I use the potty. But when I ask her why she won't poop in the potty, she tells me, "I can't do that!" I've tried bribing her, I've tried taking away something everytime she poops in her pull-up or panties, obviously I've tried big- girl panties, I just dont know what to do! Then recently she seems to have reverted to even peeing in her pull-up!! She has been doing that in the potty since she was 19 months old! But now all the sudden, back in the pull-up. Can anyone tell me why?! Or give me any helpful advice?
