Bed Wetting Doís and Doníts for Parents
by: Jackie Kym 

There are many doís and doníts that parents should be aware of in regards to their children who suffer from bed wetting. Letís take a look at the doís and doníts of this common childhood problem. 

First of all do speak with your childís pediatrician at the first sign that bed wetting has developed into a problem. Never keep this kind of information from the doctor as he or she can be a wealth of information, advice and can also serve to put your mind, as well as your childís mind, at ease. 

Do explain to your anxious or frightened child what is taking place in regards to his or her bed wetting situation and be open and honest with all of the questions that your child wants to ask you. 

If you were a bed wetter as a child, do share your experience with your experience with your youngster so he or she feels less alone. It is comforting to know that someone you love once experienced what you are presently going through. 

Do educate yourself as best you can in regard to your childís bed wetting. There is plenty of information to be found on the Internet, plus your local library should also have some books. As well talk to your doctor and he might be able to direct you to a support group. The more armed with information you are, the better you will feel in coping with the situation. 

Do remain as patient and as calm as possible under the trying circumstances. You are upset enough by the situation, just think how your child must feel. 

 

Do be understanding ands supportive of your bed wetting child. He likely feels a great deal of shame, self-ridicule and fear at his bed wetting problem. Try to diffuse the situation as best as you can. 

Do reward your child for dry nights on a consistent basis. The consistent basis is very important. Being inconsistent in parenting in any area will not get you very far and it accomplishes little. 

Do everything you can to make your child feel as comfortable and secure as possible (both physically and emotionally). For example you might suggest that your child wear thicker underwear or pajamas to bed at night. 

Do try as many different kinds of treatments as possible for your child until you find one that works. 

Do make an honest attempt to alter habits your child has that can contribute to the problem, such as drinking fluids right before bedtime or consuming too much caffeine. 

Donít criticize your child or make him feel ashamed of bed wetting. He probably feels bad enough already without you making him feel worse. 

Donít blame your child for his condition. This can damage his vulnerable self-esteem tremendously. 

Donít scold or punish your child for bed wetting. He is not doing it deliberately to be bad and it does in no one reflect negatively on your parenting skills. 

Donít prohibit your child from spending the night at a friendís house or going camping because of his condition. Instead encourage him to enjoy the activities he enjoys and take steps to end the bed wetting problem for good.
