How can I get my 4 year old son to poo on the potty?

I've tried the charts, prizes, taken away the pull-ups, but no luck. He will stop telling me he has to go, and hold it for up to 2 days.

  • Well, you are doing all the right things! Any particular treat he hankers for? Say, M & M's? Maybe he only gets one when he goes poop on the potty?

  • My sister had her son clean out his own underwear. He hated the stinky job and ended up going in the potty so he didn''t have to do it.
