  • I got a great suggestion on another moms forum as I was having the same problem. The mom told me to explain where the poop goes when it gets flushed down the toilet- in detail. I thought it sounded kind of crazy but I tried it with my son and it worked like a charm. Basically, I told him the poop goes down the little hole, through the pipe, under the house, under the yard, under the trees, to a BIG hole where it gets washed away. I took him out in the yard and street and showed him a manhole, meter, etc. He thought that was awesome and has pooped on the toilet ever since. It's worth a try... Also bribe with M&Ms. :)

  • He is only two. My daughter was in diapers until she was four; she was reading and tying her shoes by the time she was fully potty trained.

  • I agree with the above post explain where it goes, also when my son was going through this I would take him to the potty and dump the poop from his undies into the potty, he started to get the idea. and I made a BIG deal when he did this on his own.
