  • Make him change his OWN poopy undies and then give him a cold shower (not freezing, but cold enough to get his attention) to clean him up. Make it as uncomfortable for him as you can! ....... Not a punishment, but not a nice warm bath either.

  • I agree, make it more of his responsibility. Also, do you have any idea why he doesnt want to?
