He just refuses to go

Hi Lora,

I wanted to let you know that I was very happy to find and use your method of potty training on my 22 month old son Cooper. My sister-in-law told me about your ebook so I took her advise and got it. We started on Saturday (4/12/08) with 27 potty times and 9 accidents. Sunday we went approx. 20 times with no accidents and the same goes for Monday. I had confidence in your method, but my husband and other family members seemed quite skeptical. They are pretty impressed with Cooper at this point. Thank you so much for putting this out there for parents to use. Luckily I had not tried any other methods yet so I didn’t have any bad habits to fix before starting with yours. The only problem that I am facing at this point is pooping in the potty. He seems scared about going in the potty. I have tried letting him start in his pants and finishing in the potty. And showing him when we go too. I don’t feel the other 2 would be something that he would understand. Do you have any other recommendations that may work based on his age of 22 months? I can tell when he has to go, so I try to tell him it is ok to go in the potty and take him in the bathroom, but he just keeps saying no and seems scared about it and refuses and gets upset that I have him in the bathroom. So I remove him from there and I keep seeing him have to go and just refuse that he does. Let me know what you think.

Thanks again for putting this out there. Even though it has only been 4 days, I am so glad we found this method and I will use it when my 3 month old, Keira, gets ready for potty training.
