Stool soiling is a common problem, if a proper toilet training is done at a early stage will help them more. i heard that stool soiling is can also be some defects in the anal region. so if its due to longer duration then go to a doctor and get it checked.

My 13 year old son just found blood in the toilet bowl when he had a bowel movement. The feces was a long, brown, tubular piece - did not look particularly hard or discolored. There seemed to be no blood mixed in with it. The water in the bowl had settled; it was clear at the surface, then bright red like raspberry tea below that, then darker red down in the bottom of the bowl. My son is in great health, very athletic, slim, eats well (albeit light on the fiber); he has no pain and there is no sound of abdominal growling . He did not strain making the stool and felt no pain as it passed. He is in no distress and in fact is in a great mood. Any ideas?

My 12 yr old daughter is still soiling her underwear, she tells us that she does not know that she needs to go to the bathroom. I think she's lying. She is constipated and probably goes to the bathroom to poo when her tummy is really sore and all that stuff needs to get out. But she has a hard time pushing it out and is always crying out loud in the toilet. I'm wondering whether she's just lazy or whether there's a medical problem with her colons.
