Help, I am having a hard time with this potty training. He sits on the potty and will pee on but I really can't get him to poop. I am also trying to get him to tell me when he has to go, so not working. What do I do!!! Thanks for your help.

I'm toilet training my daughter and it did take her a lot longer to poop in the potty than pee. Hang in there, it'll happen eventually. We started talking about what "big girls" do and that helped a lot. She is pooping in the potty and toilet now all the time, but we still have accidents ... she's not telling us when she needs to go ... and when we ask it's always "no" .... but we have discivered she sways from side to side when she needs to go, perhaps your little man performs a similar behaviour... it took us a while to realise what the sway meant. Good luck!

Also, figure out what kind of reward would be best for your little one - I've heard people using lollies and chocolates, but we use stickers and she just loves them!!
