I have a 3 year old grandson (he will be 4 in 2 months). He refuses to potty train. We have tried everything. He is now in underwear hoping he will go on the potty but he still pees and poops in his pants. He has even lied about pooping in his pants when I asked him. I could smell it. We are not getting angry with him. I told him that the next time he will poop on the potty and he shook his head no. We are trying because no school will take him not potty trained at his age. How do we proceed without making him more resistant? He certainly knows what we expect. Help!
