  • it took my husband taking our son to the potty to get him to try to poop in the potty. He still fights me on it, but now its not a screaming fit about it once i get him to set there.

  • My cousin has a method she is trying right now with her 3 1/2 year old. Every time he poops somewhere other than the potty he loses a toy. When he goes on the potty he gets a sticker on his chart and after he gets ten stickers he gets a toy back.
