Refusing to go potty?

My four year old refuses to poop on the potty. He knows when he needs to go, and nothing seems to be working to stop his defiance. He goes in his pants on purpose. And timing him hasn't even helped. Any suggestions?

  • My DH used to do this all of the time,, a babystitter had spanked him for going in his pants,, have you tried rewards? Like a big one the first few time, if you go poo poo in the potty, mommy will take you to McDonalds. Has he always done this, or is this a new behavior?
