5 year old won't poop in potty.

I need help for the past 2 and a half years I have been trying to get my son to poop in the potty. He was pee trained by 3. He has been to the doctor he have no physical problems. He is also seeing a therapist for behavior problems who is trying to help. He does NOT hold until he is constipated he simply hides when he needs to poop the tells us after. He knows he needs to poop in the potty but now I feels like its instinctual to hide he cries and says he wants to be a big boy. How do I help?

We have tried rewards and taking things away. We put him on the potty regularly and watch for signs. He manages to make it through kindergarten every day without accidents.

Hi Cyndelrj! Are you consistent in training him to poop in the potty? Continue to motivate him and always acknowledge even the slightest improvement in his training.
