My 3-year-old son is not yet toilet trained. He is, and always has been, extremely resistant to the idea. Recently he started holding back his bowel movements, saying he wants to "keep the poo inside". We are very concerned about this and don't just want to treat it with laxatives or stool softeners. He sometimes goes three days without going. Is the potty training causing this? Our approach is to simply "talk it up", commenting on how big boys use the potty, how he can't go to school until he uses the potty, and asking him if we would like to sit on the potty. His answer is always, "I'll do it tomorrow." Help!
