At last we have a book which focuses exclusively on stool withholding in children and how to overcome it. Inspired by the author's experience of this issue with her own son, this easy-to-understand guide gives detailed advice on every aspect of stool withholding including soiling (encopresis), toilet training, laxative medication and constipation.

Stool withholding is most common in two to four year olds but it can also affect school-age children. It is often triggered by an episode of painful constipation. The child then becomes so terrified of experiencing this pain again that they hold on to their poop for days, even weeks, at a time. Just to add to the misery, stool withholding often causes children to soil their underwear. This bewildering problem can sometimes feel like a form of daily torture, not just for the child but for the whole family. Unless you've experienced this with your own child, it's difficult to imagine just how distressing it can be.

After reading this, parents will have a straightforward plan of action, with lots of tips and strategies to try at home. The book also contains useful information about the laxative MiraLAX (known as RestoraLAX or Lax-A-Day in Canada), with guidance on appropriate doses. The advice given is backed up by research, as well as the experiences of the author and other parents who have had to deal with this issue.

Aimed primarily at parents, this guide should also be essential reading for healthcare professionals, teachers and anyone else who works with, or cares for children. Stool withholding is still a widely misunderstood issue. If awareness and understanding of this subject is increased, many families could be spared this distressing problem.               UK/Europe/Australia/NZ Edition also available on Amazon: "Stool Withholding: What To Do When Your Child Won't Poo!" (with guidance on Movicol dosage)

Amazon Reviews from the UK/Europe Edition: "Stool Withholding: What To Do When Your Child Won't Poo!": 
"Fantastically helpful. Best advice we have come across on the subject - and we have seen health 'professionals'! Highly recommend this book." 
"Buy this book - I have followed it for two weeks now and my daughter (3 and half) is now going to the toilet and pushing her stools out. We seriously didn't know what to do and have just decided to follow it and it has worked!" A
 
"A great self help book. With so little help out there, I found this book invaluable in dealing with my 3 year old daughters stool withholding issues." KD 
 
"Such a relief to know I'm not the only one trying to figure this out. Thank you so very much for writing this in a clear and concise way, not too much jargon which meant that despite being stressed about it all I still took in all the advice and support being offered. Highly recommended." GDM
