My son is three, almost four and was potty trained over the summer. He has always had "potty issues" since he was two and we introduced the potty. When he was two, we didn't make a big deal of it, but he started holding it...mainly I think because he was not ready and putting so much pressure on himself to poop on the potty when he just simply wasn't ready to do so. He got into a holding it pattern and we had to give him an enema after five days of holding it. He fought us physically with this but we had no choice! After the first enema, he still continued to hold it for a couple hours. We have ruled out all medical issues and this is just a control thing.
