Hello and welcome to health care magic. Thanks for your query.
Since your child is suffering from constipation
, I would suggest you to decrease the amount of constipating foods in your child's diet . Examples of constipating foods are cow's milk, ice cream, cheese, and yogut.
Increase fiber content in the food.your child is 4 years old so he/she requires 9 to 10 grams of fiber per day in the diet i.e lots of fruits and green leafy vegetables.
Never try suppositories/enema
unless s advised by your pediatrician .
You can encourage your child to have sitz bath ( sitting in a tub of hot water for 10 to 15 min)which will relax the anal sphincter and helps if your child has developed fissures/bleeding while passing hard stools.
If above home remedies
fails then you have to consult pediatrician
to look for any fecal impaction
Wish you all the best
