Some help, advise or sympathy please. My four year old son refuses to poop on the potty. He has moved up into a class of all potty trained kids and now, any little progress we had has gone down the drain, no pun intended! We have tried rewards, charts, new potty rings...you name it.
He won't go for days then he will finally purge. His pediatrician isn't too concerned but I'm afraid of teasing at school. Any suggestions?

My three year old girl was peeing in the potty exclusively and having no nightime accidents (though she wont poop in the potty). Now, I'm showing with my current pregnancy and she wont even look at the potty. Any ideas/advice/help?!? Please!!

I havent yet had to start training my son, as he is still too young, but I have had some adivse from friends with boys. They say to put a coin in the bottom and make it a game that they need to aim for it, it makes it fun for them. And also try not to get angry at them, as it scares them and they dont want to do it.

I am in the same boat. My two yr old was completly trained, then I was home from work for two weeks and she is having numerous accidents every day. I sure hope this stage doesn't last long cuzz I just got her three yr old sister bladder trained. She still won't pooh in the potty though, so I have some work to do there.

It just clicked one day. He had tummy problems and took care of it by himself. He didn't want a huge mess in his pants and we have not looked back. It will happen. We just lightened up and told him he knows the right thing to do...and he did!
