Bedwetting, or nocturnal enuresis in medical speak, is considered a natural part of a child’s development. The good news for parents is that it is not typically a sign of an underlying psychological, emotional, or medical problem. The other good news is that kids eventually grow out of it.
That doesn’t mean that it is any less stressful for parents or kids alike when it does happen. Children are embarrassed about it, particularly when they plan to have a sleepover at a friend’s house or go away to camp. Parents too often feel like there is nothing they can do to stop it. Thankfully, though, with some reassurance, emotional support, understanding, and some simple solutions for bed wetting you can help your child get through these trying episodes.
