My 12 year old grandson has problems with bowel movements.

My 12 year old grandson has problems with bowel movements. His stool appears soft and smells much worse than normal. He leaves a very strong odor down the hall. He uses a lot of toilet paper with every bowel movement. He fills the toilet with paper and clogs it every time he goes. This doesn’t seem normal to me. When he was 10 years old he was pooping in his pants. I would like to know what a normal bowel movement should be like for a 12 year old.

My 14 yr old daughter has had bowl problems for a few years now and has tried high fiber foods and benifiber and such with no luck, now she has gone 3 weeks between bowl movements and pain on left side. also the stool is VERY large and unflushable( that is her norm though). Should I be concerned that the bowl movents are getting fewer and farther between?
