Reply to Need of some serious help!!

My daughter would pee in the potty if we put her on there, but would not poop. She would hold it for days. It is different for them to go poop on the potty and this seems normal. We did tell her she could have a piece of chocolate if she pooped on the potty. It helped a little. After 5-10 poops in the potty it stopped being a big ordeal. I will say that they are not used to sitting and pooping so sometimes she thinks she has to go, will sit there, then nothing will happen and she will want to get off. This sometimes happens a few times before she actually goes. It is frustrating, but you got to stay calm and patient and play the game so they dont get more stressed out about it. And our school did say to just switch to underwear. There are some accidents to deal with, but if you keep the diapers on, there is no "consequence" for them to just go. It will push them to learn to know when they get "the feeling".
