Effective Tiding Over Child Bowel Control Issues

Submitted by on June 13, 2009 – 8:35 pmNo Comment




A very usual occurrence in children is the tendency to pass bowels that are caused by contraction and relaxation of the intestinal muscles during the passage of food in the midst of a meal or after a meal. Once the child starts making a correlation between her inner sensations and the visual evidence of passage of faeces/urine means the child is ready for some adult assistance.

Effective Tiding Over Child Bowel Control IssuesThe child will make his sensation of full rectum/bladder evident with definite attention grabbing tactics like crying, shouting, diverting your attention to the diaper, certain movements or weird sounds. Many a tots find it easier to control a full rectum than a full bladder, so one might find the child adapting better and faster to controlling his bowel movements than bladder movements. Due to this, it will be advisable to introduce the potty for bowel training first, as bowel motions are more knowable, thus one can get the child ready for it.

Once the child displays typical behavioural stints, make the situation easier for the child by removing off any clothes and nappies that might come in the way while going to the potty on time. Lead the child along to use the potty and encourage the child to try sitting on it, avoiding forceful gestures as the child might react wrongly with a straightforward refusal or throwing a temper tantrum.

One must always remember to never try to hasten the process as it will lead to frustration, inadequacy, resentful feelings in the child that will only slacken your final goal. The child will eventually develop control on his/her own pace with your positive vibes to help the process.

Make use of the specially made seat that fits snugly into the lavatory rim and a small step in front so the child can climb up to sit, encouraging the child to hold on to the sides of the seat.

One must avoid showing signs of revulsion or aversion towards the child’s faces, as it is only an innate phenomenon, which initially children feel very proud of or feel they have accomplished something significant.

One must avoid any delay once the child gestures as control is possible for short spans of time, always paying compliments if mission accomplished. One must be ready for any accidents that will happen once in a while, trying not to get flustered with the mishap and making the child aware that these accidents will always be forgiven and forgotten and the child need not get worked up about it.

Avoid flushing after bowels are cleared in front of the child, for many get petrified at the noise and that a piece of them is being taken away from them. The key to getting around this challenge finally boils down to gentleness and loads of understanding.
