I stand by sitting there until he poops. I knew when he had to poop. He would squeeze his butt cheeks together and walk on his tip toes. It only took me 3 days to potty train him with pooping. Even my husband, mother, grand mother, dad, brother. etc believe I did a great job doing what I did to potty train my son. and it does not cause stress or constipation.
She asked for opinions, I gave her what worked for me...I don't care if you think it was cruel, You were not there and it wasn't..it just sounds cruel. I let him have a book so he could read it like his daddy does when he poops. he didn't cry the whole time. but when I WAS FED UP WITH HIM ALWAYS CLEANING UP AFTER HIS ACCIDENTS I made him stay on the potty until he pooped. SO I GUESS THAT MAKES ME A BAD MOM...THEN SO BE IT...YOU ALL THINK YOU ARE SO MUCH BETTER I GUESS??
