Dr. Hodges is a bit of a goofball, so naturally he enjoyed the movie American Pie, in which a teenager holds his poop all day to avoid using the school toilets. One of the kid’s so-called friends solves this problem in a prank involving a bottle of laxatives and a mochaccino, and the scene is pretty darned funny. But from where Dr. Hodges sits during his day job, he doesn’t think it’s funny at all.
Dr. Hodges wants the world to know: We have a nation of kids who are either too grossed out, afraid, or embarrassed to poop or pee at school. Because of this — and because kids are often rushed into potty training and served way too much highly processed food — we have an epidemic of childhood toileting problems. But, with the right treatment, these problems can be solved!
