I am starting to lose all patience with my son. He is very potty trained and has been for a year. The problem started when he flushed the toilet in the kids bathroom one time and it not only overflowed but the water pipe burst at the same time. This apparently really traumatized him but has been getting worse over time. At first he would use the potty but not flush. That I can deal with to a certain extent. Lately, he will not use the toilet to poop in at all! Yes, that means that he is pooping outside and ON THE FLOOR. I am SO angry right now because he just had one more "accident". I'm trying SO hard to work with him through his fears but I'm just fed up with this. It took ALL my willpower to come in here to talk to you guys about it instead of spanking him. Please someone help.
