My son is two and a half, and has proven to me he is ready to try potty training. He tells me when he needs to go, and he does. He's very happy to wee on the toilet. But hes terrified of pooping on it. He has pooped on it a few times and I tell him what a good boy he is. And hes totally proud after the deed is done. But getting there is rather difficult. He gets a diaper still outside of the house and at bedtime. So he holds in his poop until one of those times comes. Sometimes he can't hold it in, which is when I step in and try soothing him and encouraging. But he just gets so upset over it I can't think of how to explain to him its nothing to be afraid of. Any thoughts?
