Do you ask your 7 year old kid if he/she has a bowel movement everyday?
The only time I notice bowel movement with my kids is when they are in diapers. My 7 year old daughter complained of tummy aches last Friday. I was thinking she was hungry. She would complain about them from to time. Today I get a call from my daughters school nurse informing me to come and get her. DD had a mild fever and a stomach ache. So I take dd to the ER wondering why does she have this tummy ache that wont go away. I am thinking blockage or appendicitis since there was a fever to go with it. Dd had a X ray done and she is severely backed up. I was like are you kidding me? Dd is on a laxative now but I guess I have to start asking her if she takes her daily poop. Do you ask your kids if they poop on a regular basis?
