Hi there,

My DS will be 5 in April and he will not poop on the potty. He can pee just fine, but if he has a pull-up on he is essentially lazy and will sometimes pee in the potty or pee in his pull-up.

Now since my son was almost 4 he has been able to pee on the potty and at for the last year 5 times a week goes to school in underwear. The problem has been as soon as he gets home, he will begin to brew a poppy and does not care if he goes in his underwear, which up until this weekend I have allowed him to wear pull-ups in the evening and to bed. Everyone said, don't stress he'll get it! Well I am at the end of my rope! We have tried rewards etc. I am at the point where if he wants a clean underwear he has to wipe his own butt! Any suggestions?
