I am so frustrated I don't even know what to do with myself.
DS just turned 3 August 10. Started potty training him right before Christmas last year. He got #1 down immediately. Knock ok wood he never has accidents with #1. It's #2 that he can't seem to get down!
He says he's scared to go poop on the potty...about 25% of the time he will go but that's after I realize he needs to go bc he's doing a potty dance and looks uncomfortable. He'll always tell me he needs to go #1 by himself...he never tells me he needs to go #2.
Like I said about 25% of the time he'll go #2 on the potty after I've made him go sit on it but that's after at least 45 minutes of crying/freaking out/arguing with me that he doesn't need to go.
The other 75% of the time he'll go in his underwear. I feel like I try my HARDEST to not take my eyes off of him but somehow it still happens...if I turn around for one second he'll go. Or he'll go in his pull up before I go in his room in the morning to get him up. (He still wears pull ups to sleep)
I wouldn't be freaking out as bad as I am except he started 3 year old preschool today and they have a strict policy that all the 3 year old classes need to be potty trained. You have a one month grace period from the time that school starts to get it under control and if your child isn't potty trained at the end of the month they have to be removed from the program. They allow for the OCCASIONAL accident as accidents will happen but it can't be a regular thing.
First day was today and he pooped in his pants there. Went #1 totally fine but pooped in his underwear half way through the day.
I am so worried I won't be able to sort this out and he won't be able to go. He went last year for 2 year old preschool and loved it and made so many friends. I'd be so sad if he had to miss out on everything this year bc of this!!
Please ladies any advice would be so helpful! I've tried a reward system...stickers, lollipops, small prizes, candy...I've tried acting like I don't care to see if he picked it up on his own. I've tried telling him how frustrated it makes me and putting him in time out...I've tried every angle I can think of.
Please someone tell me what to do!!
