Our son is 3.5 and is very resistant to pooping on the potty. Sometimes he will pee on the potty/sometimes not. We do lots of positive reinforcement at home, and I ask him all the time if he wants to go potty. Most of the time he says no. He knows when he has to go and knows when he needs to be changed. Everything I have read about potty training says to remain casual about it; he will do it when he's ready.
This is hard for me. I feel like he is late on this as almost all other kids in his daycare class are PT. How can I get him over the hump if he's at daycare all day? Is it really fair to his teachers to just send him in big boy undies with a few changes of pants, knowing he will be pooping in his pants? I feel like it's our job as parents to help this process along and I can't do that if I'm not there. I hate to put that burden on them, kwim?
Some people have told us to take time off work and do the whole hardcore PT boot camp thing. That is not practical/possible with our schedules. Is there any way we can get this done with him being in daycare all day?
I would really appreciate some advice! Thanks :-)
