Default child is not potty trained :-( your advice please...

A previously healthy 3-year-old boy brought in by his parents for help with potty training. The boy refuses to
use the toilet. If his parents try to place him on the toilet, he becomes upset and cries. He has regular
urination in his diaper. He has 1-2 soft bowel movements a day. In the office, you note that the child speaks
in short sentences that are mostly understandable. He runs well and can climb up on the examination table
without help. His physical examination is unremarkable. Which of the following is the next best step in the
management of this patient?
A. Increase fiber in his diet
B. Put him on the toilet at regularly scheduled times
C. Use a positive reward system
D. Stop potty training attempts for several months
E. Perform a urinalysis

It is D. This was a uworld question that I did. You want to stop the training until the child is ready to be potty trained by himself. You do not want to force him to do at this point. Just wait!

Because it has to do with the child's psychology. He is developing phobia to potty training due to bad attempts at potty training. What he needs is a break and restart potty training after few months with "reward" policy.
