Bedwetting and its effects on your child

Bedwetting can be more than a slight embarrassment for your child. When we can not attribute nocturnal enuresis in a specific physical cause (such as a urinary tract infection, for example), this condition is not a long-term risk. However, it can have a real impact on self-esteem of a child, as its relations with friends and at school.

In a study comparing the stress represented by different events in the life of a child, youth indicated that the level of distress felt when they wet the bed is comparable to that they experience when they try to get good grades in school or when other children tease. In the views of children, only disputes between parents and divorce were considered most stressful.

Bedwetting can cause behavioral problems because your child feels guilty and embarrassed. Children who wet the bed can be folded more about themselves the next morning and feel that they have no control over the problem.

At school, they may have a level of social skills and lower success rate than other children. Enuretic child will perhaps show more aggressive behavior or difficulty concentrating in school and self-image may be deficient.

Bedwetting children have constant fear that their friends discover their secret and that they benefit to annoy. They fear more than any situations where they must sleep away from home, such as family holidays or nights with friends. Because they are afraid to betray their secret, many enuretic children are concerned about having to go outside and do not invite their friends at home. In one study, were asked to bedwetting children to indicate how the ability to stay dry at night would be more enjoyable. Several responded that this would be the ability to ask friends to spend the night at home or vice versa.

Bedwetting children should live as normally as possible and not have to suffer from feelings that may reduce their self-esteem, like shame, guilt and embarrassment. As a parent, the first step that will allow you to help your child is understanding what he saw. Remember, it is not responsible for the enuresis.

Make informed decisions for the health of your child by learning about what you can do for your child enuretic to help take care and affection to avoid the negative impact of this on his life.
