I have tried both negative and positive reinforcement. We've read books on the potty and I've left him with privacy. I've put only underwear and only pull ups.Now I alternate. I've tried different potties as well. Stickers, gummy bears, even a spanking. He hates the feel of it in his pants and will even often ask for a bath afterward but it does not stop him from retreating to the corner to poop in his pants. I need help. I have been patient but it has been more than a year and he is yet to go number two even once in the toilet. I am at wits end!Answer Question

I know this sounds harsh but it worked with my daughter when she wouldn't stop peeing her pants. We had her stay in her wet undies for an hour or so until it got really really uncomfortable. Once she was at her wits end with the nasty feeling i cleaned her up put her in a new clean pair of panties and explained to her that if she kept peeing in her panties then she would have to stay in them all wet, all day (which was an empty threat, but she didnt know that). I did this a few times and she hasn't peed in them from then on. I know its a nasty thought to leave him in his mess but since he doesn't like it to begin with maybe he will understand that it needs to go in the potty so that it is gone for good.
Good luck to you.
