It is a problem that can be very frustrating for parents and children. If your child wets to bed, than here are some ideas for you.
Helpful Ideas for Bed wetting
It is a good idea to check with your child's pediatrician to make sure there is not a medical reason for the bed wetting such as diabetes, small bladder or urinary tract infection. It is especially important to have a through physical examination if your child is seven or older and still having wet nights. If there is no medical reason for your child's bed wetting, there are still ways to help both you and your child cope with the problem.
Remember. . .
It is important to remember that no child wets to bed at night on purpose. This is often a humiliating and unpleasant experience for them. So never punish or criticize your child for wetting the bed. Instead practice positive reinforcement. If they have a dry night make sure you praise them for it.
Usually with a little patience and understanding, the bed wetting will become less and less. However, in some cases children can wet the bed well into their teens. There are bed wetting alarms that go off when they detect moisture or your doctor can prescribe certain medications that may help with the problem.
