How to Help Your Child Stop Bedwetting: 3 Positive Steps to Overcoming Enuresis

Bedwetting can be frustrating, not just for parents but children, too. If a child is made to feel shame for wetting his or her bed, that can lead to self-esteem issues.

Relying on a positive approach can be far more helpful, not just in the short term of overcoming this behavioral issue, but long term. A positive way of dealing with bedwetting can carry over to other challenges that will arise in your child's life. Here are three easy ways to start: 

  • Offer reassurance. Your child knows what happened. They also know they shouldn’t be wetting their bed. Offer some reassurance that you’re not upset with them.
  • Evaluate your child’s state of mind. If your child is stressed or anxious about school, friends or even circumstances at home, that can increase the risk of bedwetting.
  • Cut back on beverages before bed. By simply reducing how much your child drinks an hour or two before bedtime, you can reduce the risk of bedwetting significantly.

I was raised in a chaotic and unstable home and wet the bed til I was 12. It was definitely stress in my case. Luckily when I began to feel less of it, it stopped but this is not just a toddler problem. I know others who said it went on well into their teens. Very hard when you are an older kid.
