Hi doctor,

My child, who is 9 years old, has bedwetting problem. Please suggest me.



Welcome to icliniq.com. Approximately 1 out of 65 children experiencing regular incidents at the age of 9. Occasionally, bedwetting can betriggered by emotional distress, such as being bullied or moving to a new school. Reassuring your child that everything is fine is also important. While emotional distress, like bullying or transitioning to a new school, can occasionally trigger bedwetting, it is crucial to provide reassurance and support to your child. It is important not to reprimand or punish them for wetting the bed, as this approach is unhelpful and may exacerbate the problem. Instead, let them know they are not alone and reassure them that things will improve over time. As a starting point, you can implement a few strategies at home, such as limiting their evening fluid intake and ensuring they visit the toilet before going to sleep. By taking these steps and offering understanding, you can help your child navigate through this phase with patience and care.
