Constipation cures for children are similar to the cure for adults having constipation. But children may have some different issues to deal with.
The causes for children having constipation may be a little different so accordingly the remedies for constipation will differ.
As all the causes may not be applicable to every child having constipation problem, child specific cures for constipation should be used depending on the causes observed.
Here are a few suggestions about what you can do
By explaining the need to go to toilet when they feel the urge you can
help the children. They may need to be reminded to go to toilet.
My daughter needed that reminder even though she was not constipated. She found it irritating to interrupt what ever she was doing. 'why do we have to go there everyday?' she would ask. I told her 'We eat 3 or more meals a day. Shouldn't we eliminate the waste at least once?' That seemed to convince her.
I still had to be patient and remind her to go. She started going once in two days and then later on, once a day.
Restoring the normal bowel habit can take some time. Keeping track of food and other habits can help. You can see results soon by offering healthier, high fiber foods. Do not bring any junk foods in the house.
Most of the time, explaining to the child peacefully about the health issues and good health practices may work better. Make sure you also follow your advice regarding the foods you eat and the way you eat. When you do that, children will follow your example.
