One thing is starting preschool. I was scared he wouldn't be able to go. He has to be potty trained. He is doing well. I had a friend whose daughter would not poop on the potty till she started preschool. She never had an accident after that. We have not been that lucky but the boy does love school and knows he needs to use the potty to go there.
Another thing that helps is the Leapster. I think they should market the game for potty training. Have a wiggly child who won't sit still long enough to poop, give him a Leapster to pass the time. It may not work for everyone but Davey loves the Leapster. We only let him use it when he is trying to use the potty. We like to limit his time on it anyway. It is working for us.
Photo removed due to creepy people.The third thing that is working is a reward system. My boy loves putting coins in his piggy bank. He doesn't care what the coins are either. I give him 4 coins when he poops and he feds his hungry piggy bank. His piggy bank thanks him for feeding him and tells him how proud he is too. (Yes I am the voice of the hungry piggy bank.) I also give him a piece of chocolate when he poops. I am so not above giving food as rewards for this. I know it won't be forever and it really is helping now. The boy is a lot like the yellow lab and very food motivated at this point.
Niether Leapster nor Twix have compensated me for writing this post.
