I have a 4 year old son who will not poop on the potty at all. We have been working with him for months but he still goes in his underwear or diaper. When you talk to him about it he tells you he is supposed to go on the potty and that he would get $1 for going, but he continues to go in his pants. We have tried so many different things but he doesn't go on the potty. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Try a different form of a bribe...candy, gum...something he can use right away. My son was so much easier than my daughter, she is 3 years and has only pooped on the potty once. They have all the control. Sometimes it is about making them think it was their idea. It sucks. It is hard. And you are not alone.
