    I was googling information on the Web and came across an article which talked about how massaging the feet of children for 20 minutes a day helps with potty problems (encopresis).

    I know this may be nothing but I've been doing this strategy for a week with my six year-old while he watches TV and he has had no problems lately (streaks, skid marks, etc....) Maybe it's nothing but thought I'd pass it along. I actually massage his feet, hands, back, head as long as possible (30 minutes).

    He is ticklish but will let me do this especially if he is watching a TV show. Just thought I'd share in case it would help anyone else out! Have a happy day!
