  • Why is she scared? Maybe if you discover the reason for her fear you can help her overcome it.

  • I do not know if this will work for you but it did for me, my son .. (who is now 7 ) was just like that would not go poo he would do anything not to, he was scared I found out of the hard plopping noise it made when he went poo, but pee it did not make that noise, so I added water to the "big Boy" potty and then it made less of a plopping noise and it worked :0 I hope this helps you:)
