In brief: See your physician

Watery stool for a month needs an evaluation by a physician expert in the care of children.

In brief: Age? other?

Hard to know without more specifics, age, travel, family history of bowel problems, nocturnal (middle of the night) stools, accidents, bleeding, weight loss, etc.
A full exam and history should narrow down the list. Infections (parasites) can be tested for. Antidiarrheals can be very useful once infection is excluded. But if there is an underlying cause, this needs to be treated.
