Ok ladies I'm having some major issues! I have a 3 year old little boy (turned 3 in August) who will PEE everytime in the potty. Never misses it HOWEVER when it comes to poop that's a different story. He has been peeing in the potty since about 2 years and 8 months but never ONCE has he pooped in the potty. He just refuses to do it. I have bribbed with toys, candy, tv, movies, everything that I can think of but he just continues to go in his underwear. I have done the time-out method for this and made him sit there for about 5 minutes and then asked him when he gets up "now are you going to poop in the potty and he will say yes mommy" but guess what the next time will go again in his underwear. I have sat him on the potty when he got the "face" that he had to go but he just won't go. I'm out of options and suggestions. Has anyone else experienced this and what did you do?Answer Question

I have four children three of them had no problems going poop in the potty. I do have a four year old son (a twin) who is scared to poop in the toilet. He will actually go into the bathroom tell me to leave him alone when I go in to see if he needs help. He has been pooping in his pants puting the poop in the toilet, wash his hands change his underwear and goes on with his day. I am not sure what t do.
