My son just turned 3 and he won't poop in the potty. When he poops in his underwear, he goes to the bathroom, takes his underwear off, dumps the poop in the potty, and flushes the toilet. If some spills on the floor, he runs and gets a tissue to pick it up and flush it down the toilet and washes his hands. Afterwards, he comes and tells me that he has yuckied (that's what we call it.)
Yes, he learned this from watching how I get him clean. Will he poop in the potty when he's ready or do I continue with discipline even though it doesn't seem to work? Yes I've tried incentives.
