My daughter just turned 6 on the 21st of August and we are still having issues with the potty. The big issue we are having is that she will NOT poop in the toilet. I have talked to the doctor, they told me to try miralax to clean her out and get her to start over, that didn't work, she went right back to holding it in. I have tried bribing her with a dollar for every day that she doesn't poop in her underwear, she made it one day and then went on to holding it in again. I have tried punishing her for pooping in her underwear, that just made it worse. I'm at a loss on what I can do to get her to stop soiling herself. She is in first grade this year and I'm worried she is going to do it at school! She did in kindergarten! We have sat down and had many talks about why she needs to use the potty, she will go and pee in there just fine, just not poop! Does anybody have any hints or tips on what I can do to help move this situation along a lil bit easier?
