    Thanks for sharing dido. I think it just takes a little longer for some kids like anything so I'm feeling a bit more positive this morning. He can start kindy when he is TT and that may be only a few weeks time so I'm sure he'll be fine.

    Kindy isn't compulsory here but pre primary is full time so I'd like him to do as much as he can before next year even though I really believe that 3.5 is much too young to start!

    He's dry overnight already and hasn't regressed with his weeing in the daytime despite me using pull ups because I got sick of cleaning poohs from jocks. So I'm hopeful he will get there soon!

    Glad to hear you are feeling more positive! I think 3.5 is very young also but hopefully he will love kindy once he starts.

    Have you tried using a potty for poos? Summer is good for leaving jocks off outside and having them use a little potty. Worked for my daughter when she was not even weeing in the toilet.

    Does he do anything is particular when he's about to do a poo? Sometimes they have a signal like squatting or hiding and you could be ready to run to the toilet?

    Unfortunately he doesn't like sitting on the potty and prefers the toilet! I've only noticed him lately make any sort of change of expression when he poos. Where he kind of stops and looks like he's thinking! But up until about a week ago he had a complete poker face! There was literally no clue he was pooing until you smelt it off course! Doesn't even stop playing. My DD was so obvious, there was no mistaking what was happening hahah

    Have you tried a sticker chart with a reward after X stickers for poo's? My DD starts kindy this year too and will turns 4 in a couple of months. She has only just trained since the middle of dec! So you're not alone. I've been trying on and off for a year before she clicked. I've found they can be scared of doing no 2's on the loo, but once they go once, they get better. She's only been trained for 2's for about 3 weeks and I used a sticker chart to get her to try. She's now earnt her reward and is very pleased with herself. Worth a shot?

    Can you look at daycare instead of a kindy scenario? They tend to be a lot more tolerant of these issues and will run a kinder program from his age group so he should still get the kindy program just in a daycare environment. My DS didn't do 3yo kinder as I had no idea about it but he did it through daycare and then went to a 4yo kinder.
