Tips, Tools, and Solutions to Presented by Tips, Tools, and Solutions to The famous actor and director, Woody Allen, once said, “Eighty percent of success is showing up.” I would amend that slightly: Eighty percent of school success is showing up AND staying organized.

On the other hand, I’ve worked with tremendously gifted students for whom learning came easy, but their grades did not reflect their true abilities.

Choose an over the counter STIMULANT laxative and follow the directions on the package for your child’s age and weight. A few examples are: Magnesium citrate (liquid) Fletchers (liquid) Milk of magnesia (liquid, chewables) Little Tummys (liquid) Dulcolax (pills, Ex Lax) Senekot (pills, Smooth Move Tea) Pedialax stimulant laxative (chewables, tongue strips) Bisacodyl (pills) 2. Do a clean out when there is access to a bathroom for 24-48 hours. 3. The goal is to have several bowel movements that are loose or watery. 4. Start on Friday if your child is in school. Give the first dose on Friday afternoon or evening and the second dose on Saturday morning if needed. 5. If there is no bowel movement after 2 doses of the laxative, try a Fleet enema or a glycerin suppository.
