My 3 yr old son seems scared to go on the potty chair, he will sit and pee but wont poop, and when i try to put underwear on him he wigs out then runs and sits back on the potty but wont go at all.

How long has he been fully pee trained without messes?

Is the profile picture recent or is it the child you are trying to train?

He has been pee trained for about a week now.  the photo is of my 2nd child he is not being potty trained yet.

Poop training almost always takes longer than pee training. It's different muscles and different feelings for the "need to go poop" than the "need to pee" so there's no need to get too worried just yet. :-)

I was asking about the photo because if the 2nd child was still tiny like that, it could be affecting potty training for the older child.  How old is the baby?

sorry been awhile since i have been online. The baby in the photo is over a year. The potty training is going more smoothly now, he puts his underwear on, and has been pooping in the big potty for about a week now. he has had a few little accidents but nothing major =)
