My daughter's been potty trained since she was 2 1/2, and has no trouble peeing in the potty by herself, but we've always struggled with the poop thing. She used to hold it in for days until it was huge, and then it would hurt when she'd go, so I could understand her reluctance then. Now she doesn't hold it, she just goes in her pants. She'll go in the potty for a few days, and then revert back. I've tried taking away toys and privleges when she goes in her pants, and rewards like stickers, tattoos, and getting toys back when she goes in the potty. I've tried ignoring it, making her clean her undies, nothing seems to phase her, she just acts like it's a big joke, it's sooo frustrating!!! She starts preschool in a week and I'm afraid she'll do it there too. Any suggestions?
