Bedwetting

Bedwetting can be defined as the situation in which a child of 5 years or older wets the bed one or more times per week.

Influence on your child's self-confidence
As bedwetting is very unlikely to cease by itself in the short term, it can have a negative effect on both child and parents. If bedwetting is seen as a problem, the child will feel ashamed and will lose self-confidence. Staying overnight at a friend's house or attending school camp for a few nights can be fantastic experiences. But not for a child who wets the bed. He or she will prefer to avoid such things, or will experience them with much unnecessary worry. 

Performance during the day also affected
In addition to its mental impact, bedwetting can also be physically exhausting. A wet bed must be changed, which leads to broken sleep. Sufficient sleep is of course important for every child, both in order to concentrate at school and in order to have sufficient energy for sport and play.

Frustrations for parents
For most parents, a child who wets the bed means that their sleep is also disturbed and that extra bedding must be washed. Some parents also see bedwetting as a shortcoming in their child. If they allow this to show, then this can have an effect on the further development of the child.

When visiting a GP/family doctor or specialist, a bedwetting alarm will often be recommended, provided at least that no physical problems are detected.

With a program of bedwetting alarm training, motivated children will usually be free of bedwetting within 3 months. In light of the potential effect on your child, you should not wait too long before beginning with training!
