More than four million children over the age of five wet the bed. For most, time will solve the problem—eventually. But how long will “eventually” be, and at what cost to parents’ frayed nerves or to the child’s self-esteem?
Parents can speed up the clock and children can wake up dry. The experts at the country’s leading center for treating childhood enuresis—the Try for Dry program at Children’s Memorial Hospital, Chicago—offer proven techniques that bring bedwetting to a happy end. They cover the pros and cons of wetting alarms, drug therapies, biofeedback treatment, and changes in diet and sleeping schedules, and they provide friendly advice on how to replace punishment and shame with awards and praise. With diaries, calendars, and other visual aids that help the child share responsibility for a solution, this authoritative book gets parents and children over a most frustrating hurdle.
Bedwetting Book Review
This book provides a welcome service to parents beleaguered by a problem that is often misunderstood and inadequately addressed. While the authors make no claims that they can cure every case of bedwetting, they do provide a sensible and coherent course of action they assure will help a majority of affected families.
