We have been potty training for a few months now, and my son will be 3 in January. He's doing OK, has no problem going #1 in the potty, sometimes on the toilet with a seat attachment, or in a cup if we're in a public restroom. But the boy just refuses to do #2 anywhere but in his underwear (or in pull-ups if it happens around naptime). He's pooped in the potty once and on the toilet once-both times he didn't fight me about it-but most of the time he won't tell me when he has to go, will say no if I ask him if he has to go, and will absolutely kick and scream if I try to have him sit for poop.
Just want to know from those that have been there-done that. Did you do anything to "break" your child's fear/anxiety/stubbornness about pooping in the potty or toilet?? We've tried offering all kinds of rewards, taking things away, saying that it's what big boys do, even telling him that one of his closest friends poops in the potty-I'm out of ideas!
