well, you can tell him that if he won't poop, eventually he'll be so sick he'll have to go to hospital, and they'll give him stuff to make him poop.

So, he can either go at home and be a good boy, or he can be really, really miserable.

Have the doctor explain to him (in 3 YO terms) what full renal shutdown means. Because if he doesn't poop, his body will start to shut down...

My 3 year old was recently potty trained and suddenly is afraid of pooping. he is holding it in now for 5 days he's not sleeping because of the pains. he refuses to let it out. he is on movicol but because he won't let it out its not working. just a tiny dot here or there. he told me he's scared and no matter what I do I can't convince him otherwise. how do I make him not scared.please help I am at my wits end.
