  • Sounds like a good bit of firm discipline is needed. He has figured out that if he cries and poops his pants, then his parents will come a runnin' Smart cookie, parents need to keep up. ;)

  • Make him wash the poop himself. I wouldn't clean him up and I wouldn't call his parents.

  • Pray and Pray. Also tell him if he wash himself up and clean himself after using the bathroom. He will get a reward like takinghim somewhere fun.Or just tell him big boys does do that.
