Thanks for writing to health care magic.

There could be a anal fissure which is resulting in pain while passing stool.

When a child is constipated and passes a hard stool it could result in the rupture of the anal mucosa resulting in fissure.

So to prevent constipation give your kid a lot of fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables and plenty of water.
Avoid junk food.

Consult your doctor who may do a local examination to identify the cause.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
