Desperate parent of an almost 4 year old here. Our toddler isn't quite done with potty training. He knows to run to the potty to pee, but poops are almost always an accident.

My son's daycare is just being a pain and constantly sending emails reminding us how tough it is on the teachers / staff, despite us telling them how much we're trying. Any parents who can relate or offer guidance?
