Potty-Training Trials


"My son, Michael, is 3 years old, and he refuses to poop on the toilet," Julie says. "We have been potty training Michael for the past eight months, and he has no problem going number one. It's just number two that he can't seem to get. He always does it in his underwear. It's so gross that I have to hose out poopy underwear all the time!"
Julie says she and her husband, Nathan, have tried everything from potty training movies and books to time-out, and they feel like they're at their wits' end. "Sometimes I feel like I'm a bad mom, because I can't get my son to poop in the toilet," she laments.
