Bedwetting Alarms


If your child struggles with bedwetting, it may seem like cold comfort to know that you're not alone. Some parents get very overwhelmed with this problem and assume the child is lazy or weak in some way, and some parents blame themselves for not training a child "properly." In truth, bedwetting is actually a very complicated issue and there can be many reasons for it, although most doctors agree it's simply a matter of development.

Children develop many of their physical and psychological functions over time, and what seems apparent and obvious to an adult may not be to a child. Adults know not to throw temper tantrums in public, but children develop self-control over time and learn what is appropriate and what isn't as they get older. Adults know that certain foods are bad for them and will make them sick even if they taste good, and so control what they eat; children would probably eat nothing but cake and ice cream if allowed! And so it goes with bedwetting; children are not always ready to respond to their body's signals and may not even recognize them so easily the way an adult would, and may not know the proper response either.

This means that parents needs to give some serious consideration to how they handle and address their child's bedwetting. Thinking that a child needs to be punished can be a big mistake. You wouldn't punish a baby for soiling a diaper, so punishing a child for wetting his or her bed is inappropriate as well.

Adults need to remember that when children are young they often have problems with bedwetting simply because their minds and bodies have not developed enough to communicate with one another and understand one another. When a child feels an urge to use the bathroom during sleep, their mind may not respond quickly enough to wake themselves up. They may also experience bedwetting because the mind is not telling their bladder to hold their urine until they are awake.

The response of adults for the problem of bedwetting will be very important for children. If they're made to feel ashamed of themselves or are treated as if they're doing something wrong or are weak, this will not only fail to cure the problem of bedwetting, it will also damage a child's self-esteem. They will then not just wet the bed but feel bad about themselves and be overly stressed as well!

A severe problem with bedwetting should be addressed by a physician. Typically, however, a child can be helped with a bedwetting alarm and encouragement from the parents. They usually outgrow the problem as they get older and are taught to respond to their body's signals appropriately.

Most children deal with bedwetting and many parents are confused by its meaning, but the response of a parent is crucial. Rather than punish your child if he or she struggles with this issue, be patient and thoughtful and they'll soon overcome it.
