Host: What if the child refuses to train for poop? Rene Hackney: Well, there are some children who get trained to go pee on the potty and not poop, who still want their diaper or their pull-up for going poop, which is really hard, it becomes a frustrating process. But what is suggested by this method is that parents allow the child to have their diaper or their pull-up for going poop, if they are hesitant to do that and really just encourage, Wow, you know how to pee-pee on the potty, you go on that potty everyday, when you are ready I know you will put your poop their too. It s letting it go at their pace, as opposed to at the parent pace. Hopefully, the child will, as they get more comfortable, go ahead and sit on the potty to poop as well.
