I have been potty training my 3 (almost 4 year old) son for 9 months now. He has got the peeing in the potty thing down, but he refuses to poop in the potty. It's come down to where he will poop in his pants go to the bathroom, and put the poop in the toilet so it looks like he pooped in the potty. Sometimes he ends up getting it ALL over the toilet and floor. Labor day weekend - I got married - so our lives were complete chaos for like 5 days. During this time - he didn't have a single accident - pee and poop. As soon as the weekend was over, and it settled down - he is back to pooping in his pants again.
I have done everything from rewards to him cleaning up the mess he makes. His room is empty - only has his bed in it. I don't know what to do anymore - I am at my wits end with this! My daycare lady is soon going to stop taking him because he isn't potty trained.
