Interviewer: If my child is being torturing and it’s not making stool, that’s the different type of constipation. What we call that? Interviewee: That’s stool holding behavior, there are a number of times where constipation are use to be initiated. And that is introduction of whole milk into the diet, toilet training in the start of school. These are times where either the diet changes or the child is not ready to be constipated or the child is not willing to move his bowels in school so the kids tend to hold back and once they hold back the stools is get harder and larger and more uncomfortable to pass and that in fact the constipation becomes a official cycle. Interviewer: How can we treat something like that? Interviewee: The treatment is to make sure that any retain stool is clean out and the stools are soft enough so the child is unable to hold them back.
