I have worked with this family for a year (just after the boy turned three) and he just turned four. When I started, he was in underwear but pooped and peed his pants daily. It was very frustrating. He has since mastered peeing, but he poops his pants ALL THE TIME. It upsets us both when he and I have to leave the park/museum/etc, to go change and sometimes end our outing. We've tried everything to encourage him, all sorts of rewards, encouragement, etc. but nothing is working now. He made some progress up until a month ago when he stopped pooping in the potty all together (for me, at least, mom reports some success). I'm frustrated, what do I do?
