If you have a potty trainer, you have probably heard this question from a friend or two: ” My child will pee, but not poop on the potty. What do I do?” I hear potty training questions often, but this one takes the cake.
The best news, if your child will pee but not poop on the potty, is that it will stop at some point. The bad news is that it may take a while to get over the fear of going poop on the potty (some kids actually feel like they will fall in or part of their own bodies will fall into the potty!)
If you are stuck in a potty training struggle, we suggest using this book, Potty Train in a Weekend. It has a chapter devoted to this very topic, when your child won’t poop on the potty.
