Re: feeling hopeless about my 4 year old
Mama--you have tried everything within your power. I would call your doctor, and get a referral to a child psychologist. I think there is more going on here than just potty training. Unless she has physical problems that need to be addressed, there is something else causing her stress and I am sure that your stress, added to her stress, is probably not going to go away without some help.
I would personally bribe the heck out of her, though. If you poop in the potty, you get taken for ice cream. Or a new doll. Or whatever major thing she wants. Reward the positive.
