My 5 years old son feel comfortable for pee and poo in underwear or pants. He afraid from the potty. Taking him every time to toilet did not worked well. Let him clean the dirty cloth, chairs and floor even did not worked well. Removing his underwear will cause him stop his peeing as much as he can until he do it on floor. He afraid from seeing his peepee coming out.
Reminding him that he is s big boy now and he needs to help his peepee coming out at toilet was not working.

Preschool rejected him because he still not potty trained. Please help me with any advise.

Have you taken him to the doctor and explained what is going on?

Aside from a possible medical issue, I wonder how consistent you were in the potty training itself. What you said you did, seemed to not work. So I am not sure what to tell you and your right, no preschool or even public school when he starts kindergarden will take him on until he is potty trained. That is how it works. With 25 to 30 students in a kindergarden class, the teacher has no time to stop and change clothes on the one child that is not trained to use the bathroom. Also, if you did get to send your child to school, he would be ridiculed and teased to no end by the other kids.
