Bedwetting Busting Routine No. 5: Make Bedtime a Pleasant Time

Experts say that the emotional damage that can be done by the repercussions of bedwetting can be far worse than bedwetting itself, which causes children no lasting damage.

So, bedtime is an opportunity to bond with your child and address the bedwetting in a positive way. You can act as a cheerleader for your child, or read one of the many children’s books about bedwetting that are available.

The key to talking about bedwetting, whether at night or during the day, is to strike the right balance. You don’t want to ignore the problem entirely, nor do you want to spend every second of every night focusing on whether or not your child will wet the bed.

“The goal is always the same -- to have the child be invested but not consumed by this symptom, and to have families be matter of fact about it, just like any other problem,” Fritz says.
