How should I talk to my child about their bedwetting?

Children who wet the bed often feel embarrassed and ashamed about their problem, which can contribute to low self-esteem. It is important for your child to know that bedwetting is not their fault and is usually caused by deep sleep, so they simply don’t wake up when they need to go to the bathroom. Assure your child that they are not the only one with the problem and that in fact, bedwetting is a relatively common problem. The reason that this is not widely known is that most parents do not want to talk about it.

Why is low self-esteem a problem?

There have been numerous studies which have shown that children with enuresis (bedwetting) have a high instance of low self-esteem. This can become a problem later in life as self-esteem issues in childhood can potentially lead to mental health issues in adulthood. The good news is that there are things you can do as a parent to help minimize the negative emotional effects of bedwetting.

My doctor says not to worry about it, that he will eventually “grow out” of it!

Most children will eventually “grow out” of their bedwetting problem, but we find that sometimes it can persist even into adulthood. At Nytone we have spoken with many parents and individuals over the years that have bedwetting issues. In one case a woman who was about to get married called in frantic to solve her problem before her future husband found out. By using the Nytone alarm she was able to condition her brain and body to recognize the need to urinate and wake her up to use the bathroom. She was able to take the next step of her life with confidence that she was able to overcome a problem that had plagued her for 20 years! We speak to adults all of the time that still suffer with bedwetting because steps were not taken in childhood to retrain their brain and body to recognize and react to the feeling of a full bladder.

What is the next step I should take?

While you can wait for your child to outgrow the problem, we suggest giving Nytone a try! The Nytone alarm is a completely natural system which can be used on children as young as five years old. Through our own personal experience over the years we have found that most children overcome enuresis in as little as 4-8 weeks. Restore your child’s confidence and self-esteem today by giving Nytone a try!
