I'm looking for a little advice! We began training my son, now 3 1/2, back in Januaray (he was 35 months at the time).

Hello Sadie,welcome to our board.

This is a hard area to beat,they know they have full control here.

The best way to handle this is,number 1,keep the miralex handy,this may have to be used on and off for a fair bit.

From now on,every time he goes no.2 in his pants,pop him in the bathtub,stip him down and have him help you clean the pants and himself with cool water (not cold),gewt him some light cheap cloth underwear and a few pair of plastic pants,let him know that he will be able to go back to his nice big boy pants when he stops pooping in these ones,if he returns to pooping in his pants,go right back to the other one.

I have used this on many 3 and over stuborn children,and find it normally does not take to long for them to realise it is better to just use the potty.

Please keep us up-dated on what you try and his responses.

Many Blessings.

clmac.
