He will be 3 in September and we've been trying to train him for almost a year now, with some breaks when it just isn't working. He can hold it for a long time, he is starting to "hide" when he has to go poo. He understands what the potty is for and goes to the potty with us. We've tried stickers, prizes, high fives, calling Nana to tell her about successes, special treats, everything we can think of. We've got a potty that plays music when he goes and an insert for the big potty. He will hold it and beg for a diaper. We've tried letting him go naked, wear underpants, pull ups, even try to have him potty outside in the grass. Nothing works. He doesn't want to stop playing to be changed or to use the potty. He will even sit in a dirty diaper and lie and say he isn't poopy. We even tied bring the potty to the living room and setting him up with a book or a favorite show, snacks and a drink, but he just won't do it! We don't know what else to do!
