comment Encopresis: how can we encourage our child to clean himself or ask for help immediately instead of ignoring the dirty underwear?
I read this answer twice, once when seeing it yesterday and again now. While using "I pooped my pants" sticker sounds like something offensive/shaming towards the kid, the context and the good cause makes it bearable and more: I think I would also use same method, if forced into a corner by the kid like that. My daughter shows initial sign of such behavior, hopefully it will be sorted out by itself, she's only 4. Anyway glad you found the golden path, I can understand how hard it must have been.

comment How can I make noisy toys quieter?
Maybe try putting weak batteries? Not sure it would work hence just suggesting as a comment.

Nice! This might even be worthy of skeptics.stackexchange.com, don't you think? :)

comment Three year old able to poo in the toilet but still pees in his nappy
@DaveClarke yes, in my opinion punishments are part of education. Should be used sparsely and only when other ways fails, but still... without any punishment the child will eventually realize he can do anything without any consequences, which is bad.

@DaveClarke that's a thin line indeed but when the child is well aware what he is doing is wrong then punishment might be a proper course of action. Toilet training is not imprinted in our DNA, if our parents wouldn't educate us to "go to the toilet the way they want" as you put it, how will we learn exactly? For some children it comes naturally, some need more patience and guidance, that's all.

comment My son is 8 and is still soiling his pants and doesn't care
@user7830 what you mean stopped at school? If he needs to "go number 2" while at school he's holding until getting home? Also, please use @ when replying so that we'll see the reply.

It might be psychological, i.e. he's enjoying the act and does not understand why it's wrong. Did you try visiting a psychologist?

@adipro well, you can always try the "carrot and stick" approach. Carrot first of course, tell him that if he pee in toilet you will give him a prize. What we do with our daughter (to this day and she's nearly 4) is in the middle: when she want to watch TV we tell her "first go to toilet", and it works.
