How to reduce daimeter of teens BM,

We saw our teen's BM in the toilet (didn't flush) it was enormous! 3-4 inches diameter. (Always clogging the toilet)  Says it's been like that for years, no pain and no problems.  We know this is not a "normal" size.  How do we go about reducing the size?  Laxatives? A HEALTHY liquid diet for a week or two?

If she is not complaining of any stomach pain or pain in her rectum then this is just her "normal."  Everyone is different and this is just her normal size, there is nothing wrong with that.  You should not subject her to laxatives or a liquid diet when there are no problems.  However, if she starts having problems then you should make an appointment with her doctor.  If you are very concerned about this problem you can talk about this with a doctor.

My friend has three boys who were constantly clogging the toilet - she ended up replacing all of her toilets with industrial strength toilets!!
