Most children are back in school now. My boys attend a year round school so they have been in school for almost 2 months at this point.
Back-to-School time can prove to be uncomfortable for a variety of reasons, including bathroom anxiety. Children often feel they do not have enough time, enough privacy or cleanliness to properly go to the bathroom during their school day. This type of behavior can lead to constipation.
I know my boys often complain of not having enough time to go to the bathroom at school. The first thing they do when they get home from school is go to the bathroom. Children with anxiety can have trouble going to the bathroom in unusual places. I know one of my boys actually prefers to use one specific bathroom in our home, so a bathroom outside of our house it often out of the question.
Sixty-five percent of parents (of children aged 2 – 11) admit to treating their children’s constipation with an adult laxative, but there have been reports of sides effects in children, like behavioral and speech issues, resulting from one of the main ingredients in adult laxatives. Therefore, pediatric specialist, Dr. Nina Shapiro, urges parents to choose treatment options that are specifically made for children, like Pedia-Lax®.
