Bowel Movement Withholding and Resistance

Subject: Toilet training

Help! I have a 4 year old that is potty trained but will not go #2 in the toilet unless forced to. We have tried everything and don't know what to do.

Thank you,



Have you reviewed the information in the Potty Training Problems Section and more specifically, the sub sections Potty Accidents and Potty Training Regression?

We also have an article on Bowel Movement Resistance that may help as well? I hope that after reading those articles they will provide you with some ideas on what to do.

Also we sell on book specifically on this top - it is called Overcoming Bladder & Bowel Problems in Children .

Overcoming Bladder & Bowel Problems in Children

Hope this helps.

Have a great holiday weekend.

Eight and refuses to poop in the potty (11/4/2011) Reviewer: Megan (Wheeling, IL) I am a step-mom to an autistic 8 year old. He's as bright as can be and smart but can be challenging to deal with being that he has Asperger's Syndrome. He just turned 8 and he refuses to poop on the potty. I can't find pull-ups in his size nor can I afford it... HELP!!!
