what can i give my 11 year old for constipation?
Those are good, but here's some nonmedical treatments. I may be one of the best people to answer this, because I suffer from constipation. Here's some ideas:
Try a stool softener, like Colace or Dolcolax (spelling?)
If your 11 year old has been constipated for a while, try having him/her sit in a tub of warm water. It works great.
Try getting the 11 year old to drink PlumSmart. It's a delicious plum juice, and I should know, as I drink it.
Hope these help. Also, ask yourself these questions: Has him/her been able to go even a little? Has him/her been sick recently? Has him/her suffered constipation before?
