Fecal incontinence is a condition where the person loses the ability to control defecation which causes the involuntary loss of bowel contents. In children, stool incontinence occurs mainly because of two reasons, constipation and in some cases because of birth defects and genetic disorders. On a larger scale, children tend to get affected by fecal incontinence because of chronic constipation.
A constipated child may soil their underpants too. Soiling often takes place when liquid stool from the upper part in the bowel goes past the hard stool in the rectum and leaks out. Soiling is a sign of encopresis. Remember that this is involuntary and your child did not do this on purpose. They are not in control of the bowel and so they might not even know when the liquid stool has passed.
