Okay, in some ways he's growing way too fast, and in others he's dragging. All you mothers out there, I need some help! I need suggestions on how to get one strong-willed little boy to poop in the potty. The only way he is successful without fail is if he is naked. As soon as you put anything on that little bum it's fair game to poop in. I'm at my wits end! Help.

I totally know what you mean! Garrett was SO hard to train. He was 3 1/2 before he finally got it down! I honestly just left him naked all the time. Don't worry, he WILL figure it out. He wont get on the school but with a diaper on i promise. My daughter on the other hand is training herself. I am not ready to deal with it and she just will NOT keep on a diaper! I heard that boys take a while to get it and girls just seem to know exactly what they are doing. It seems to be ringing true in my family! Don't get too frustrated, it will happen. I did try to bribe Garrett a few times but he still just had to do it when he was good and ready. Good Luck!

Connor was the same way about #2. We put a pull up on him at night, so every morning he would poop in it. If we happened to get it off before he did, he would freak out and ask for a pull up. It just took time for him to get used to the idea and persistence on our part. We just kept trying to put him on the toilet when he needed to go. At first he didn't, but eventually he learned. Sorry I don't have better advice! Good luck!
