It is not necessary for every individual to have a bowel motion every day. So don't force your son to have a motion every day if his metabolism only provides for a motion every 2nd or 3rd day. Too much emphasis on bowel motions can cause psychological fixations. You can try giving him dried fruit as is, or boiled with honey. Children usually like eating boiled dried fruit, so this should do the trick.
