Karen, we had the same problem with our daughter. 2, but wouldn't do #2 in the potty. My friend lent me her video: Potty Power and it did the trick. It focuses on what a 'big kid' these kids are who can go potty. To this day, my daughter talks about what a big kid she is that she can go poop and pee in the potty. She watched it many times when we first got it and we'd reinforce what was happening in the video by putting her in underwear and explaining that if she doesn't poop in the potty like the other big kids, it would make a big mess. The first and only time she made a mess she hated it and the combination of the 2 had her bridge the gap. Good luck!

ok this may sound really mean but my mother in law had the same prob with her second son! when she had tried EVERYTHING but he would refuse, she started taking him outside, when he would go number 2, and spray him down with the hose! after a couple times he hated it so much he started using the potty! (yes it was summer time)
