What are some of your best memories in your childhood?
For me it was my first sleepover, going to summer camp, or spending the weekend with grandparents. However, for some children they may be very hesitant in these situations in fear that they may wet the bed.
Bedwetting, or nocturnal enuresis affects 15% of girls and 22% of boys and can be very embarrassing and frustrating for both the child and the parent. By the age of 5 most children gain control of their bladder. For some children once “potty trained” will not have any issues with accidents, some may be dry during the day and night for a while and accidents may start, and for some they may always have accidents here and there.
The exact cause of what could be causing your child’s bedwetting is not always completely understood but there definitely are some “triggers” that could be contributing to bedwetting. It is very important to know that your child is not trying to wet the bed on purpose and punishing your child could make their symptoms worse.
