My 3 year old has no problem peeing on the toilet, but when it comes to pooping, she's freaked out. She had what seemed to be a panic attack (according to the teacher) at school yesterday because she had to poop but didn't want to go on the toilet. The teacher discreetly put her in a pull-up and then discreetly cleaned her up afterward (said she seemed embarrassed). She usually holds it until she gets home, which obviously isn't healthy. Whenever she needs to poop at home, she tells me she needs a diaper, she does her business, then tells me when she needs to be changed. When I ask her if she wants to try the potty, she immediately falls apart. My husband and I have tried asking her why she's afraid, but she just says it scares her.
I know she'll eventually do it, but I was wondering if anyone has any tips for helping her overcome her fear of pooping on the toilet.
