Why does my child wet the bed?

By  |  0 Comments

Bedwetting is common in children. In most cases, they outgrow or manage most bladder control problems without health complications. But accidental bedwetting is traumatic, and causes emotional distress and poor self-esteem for the child as well as frustration for families. Moreover, bladder control problems can sometimes lead to bladder or kidney infections (UTIs). Bedwetting that is never treated during childhood can last into the teen years and adulthood, causing emotional distress. This can be prevented.

Children usually have one of two main bladder control problems, and this can be daytime wetting (day) or bedwetting (night). About 1 in 10 children has trouble with daytime wetting at age 5. Nighttime wetting is more common than daytime wetting.

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I write to collect smiles and donate to charities. I share stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
