My son is afraid to poop on the toilet!!!

My son has been peeing on the potty - no accidents for 3 weeks now. But he will not for the life of him poop on the toilet!!! He asks for a diaper... or sneeks away and poops in his pants!! Does anyone have any tips - or tricks that helped??
Greatly appreciated!!

  • You can always try rewards for going on the potty and punishment if he doesn't, like take a toy away. And when he asks for a diaper ask him why. When he says to poop ask him why. Keep asking so he figures out what scares him and then you can help better.
