Bed wetting is a common problem that many young children face and usually grow out of before they are past 10 years of age. Since this is an almost universal coinsurance, children should never be made to feel that they have done something wrong; no parent can scold their child for doing something on accident that they have done themselves.


Another interesting idea about bed wetting, the reason that children are able to grow out of wetting the bed is because of their parents’ help. Children respond amazingly well to parental guidance in this case, so parents should be willing to work with their children.


Bed wetting has two main causes. First, there may be psychological problems like low self esteem, poor self-immage, bullying at school, or even abuse at home.


One online source explains that children who wet the bed consistently are likely to be self conscious and should receive support from their parents. Besides psychological reasons, there are physical causes for bed wetting such as poor muscle control of the pubococcygeus muscle or an undersized bladder.


Here are some tips for helping your child overcome bedwetting. Make sure that your child goes to the bathroom and urinates before going to bed.


Children can be helped if their parents will wake them one or twice during the night to go to the bathroom. If this is done on a regular basis then children and their parents can get a better understanding of what it takes to overcome bedwetting.

Bedwetting is a negative sleep experience for children and ducks.

Parents should support their children and help remain positive and should never make their child feel ashamed for wetting the bed. Changing the bed sheets with the child without criticizing them will help the child from being emotionally damaged by bedwetting. If children do not respond to parental help and wet the bed often, medical help should be included in the efforts.

    Hi Jeff, I am a bit disappointed in your article as it doesn’t really educate the reader about enuresis (nighttime bedwetting). Majority of children that are suffering from bedwetting is not because they have a psychological or poor self-image, although that can be a factor, but because when in deep sleep the child’s brain cannot make the connection that the bladder is full, wake up and go to the bathroom. Curing bedwetting is a process and there are various treatments available. The most successful treatment is a bedwetting alarm. It is an alarm, with a sensor attached to the underwear and when the child releases the alarm sounds. This method trains the brain to recognize the feeling of a full bladder. The bedwetting alarm treatment usually takes about 6-12 weeks, until 14 consecutive dry nights are reached. The reason I feel compelled to share this information with you is because my son is a bedwetter . It has not been an easy road to dry nights as laundry piles up and I loose much sleep but many mothers will face bedwetting down the road. Through my frantic research I came across which helped me understand enuresis. This site has been a complete life saver as it’s filled with FAQ, tips and advice, products…etc.
