Hey, I understand your frustration. I tried everything too. And when I spoke to a doctor, he said, "He'll go when he's ready, just leave it alone." I said, "He could be 6 -8 years old by then?!!" He looked at me empathetically and nodded. He said the more I push the more he will rebel. So I left it, as frustrating as it was for me! But earlier this year on Feb 24th 2010, when my son was 4 years and 7 months old, he said to me, "I think I'm read to poo on the toilet." Of course I ran with it, encouraging him enthusiastically, not giving him room to back down. I put him on that potty seat right away. He pooped on the toilet 6 of 7 days. I called everyone and made a big deal. My son was conditioned to poop standing holding the doorknob for privacy. Hope this helps.
