Need advise on potty training # 2

My son ( 4 years old ) has mastered the potty with peeing and is in big boys underware but he refuses to go # 2 in the potty. As soon as he starts I put him on the toilet with books, reading to him but he just sits there. I give him a break and he poops in his pants. I've given encouragement, praise ( for trying ) even bribes but ..... any advise ?

  • I had that problem also I keep telling him he need to use the potty when he went to pee in his potty I let him pull the tub looking thing out in put it in the big potty and had him flush it and he liked doing it and now he does it. I had friends try and tell me when he poops on his self set him in a bath with cold water..but I DID NOT I thought that was so mean to do with a child.

  • With my oldest daughter I just kept reminding her that when she felt she had to do the # 2 it was okay to go to the toilet. We had litttle parties in the Bathroom and When she pooped in her panties we just stuck it in the toilet, so she could see what it looked like. After about 2 weeks of this she stopped going in her panties.

  • That is normal. boo boo is something that bothers all kids at first. We always tell them to pee in the potty first. He will get it. Tell him put it in there too
