Will giving a cell phone to your kid cause him to have anti-social behavior?

Give guidance too!: Just giving your child adult electronic tools without guidelines on their use is just as dangerous as giving them a chain saw without instruction in how to ue it.But with proper instruction and guidelines, it can be a useful tool. First, two musts - never use in school and never take to bed. Beyond that, you need to set limits and customize its use. Help them learn appropriate social norms in use.
Dr. Brad Hoopingarner

It should be removed at bedtime as the use at night will result in poor quality sleep which can cause school and behavior problems. The child should definitely avoid social media such as facebook, twitter, etc. The discussions on such sites can result in unnecessary anxiety/stress. The phone can provide safety if the child needs to contact someone when out and about. Many cell phone providers (Verizon and others), provide a service or app which will allow the parent to monitor who they are calling or texting. It also monitors data use. Often you can turn the phone/data off at night. These are nice options if you are able to use them.

Does the clean kid manual work for kids with encopresis?

Talk to a specialist: Encopresis can be an especially trying and difficult disorder to treat. The specialists in treating it usually are either behavioral and developmental pediatricians or pediatric GI doctors. They will be familiar with various approaches, probably including the clean kid manual. You need to have someone you trust with whom you can work towards a longterm solution.

Nothing: It is quite normal for children to have trouble swallowing pills. There are usually liquid alternatives.Eventually most children will swallow a pill....It certainly makes treating with medicines easier.
