Can hemorrhoids stop bowel movements?

Not directly

Anal_swelling
Painful hemorrhoids can make it difficult pass the bowels but not cause bowel blockage. Usually it is the other way, that constipation causes worsening hemorrhoid irritation. Avoid constipation, drink more water, eat more fiber, fruits and vegetables, add Metamucil fiber.

Why do toddlers holding bowel movements.?

Child retains stool?

Intestine
Voluntary stool retention is a surprisingly common problem among young children (typically males). Scheduled stooling, use of stool softeners, reward for healthy behavior & dissuading maladaptive behavior often helps. Before assuming however your child is exerting "control", first have him/her medically evaluated for colo-rectal dysfunction, Hirschprung's, metabolic disease & re-evaluate diet.
