Reassure your child they will grow out of it
Bedwetting in school-age children can be hard on the child and the parents. It is important to reassure the child that bedwetting is normal and it is nothing to fear. And most importantly it will definitely stop and it is important to keep the issue in perspective. Some tips that may help:
* be mindful of the child’s feelings when telling others
* be discreet when attending to the child if bedwetting has occurred
* give your child a simple reason for bedwetting. Tell him/her it is just the brain not receiving the message from your bladder that you need to go to the toilet.
* go to the doctor for reassurance and guidance
* tell the child if you had a problem as a child
* make the bed up twice with a plastic sheet in between the two layers..this makes the night-time bed change a lot easier
* leave a night light on
* Let the child shower in the morning to freshen up
* some people wake the child a few hours after sleep
* avoid a lot of night-time drinks
* praise the child for being patient and trying hard and the parents could also praise each other!
