3. Is bedwetting sometimes caused if the child is witness to abuse within the home?

No. Bedwetting is not caused by witnessing abuse at home. The problem is that the children sleep too deep or incorrectly.

4. Is there a correlation between urination and high protein diet?

No. A High protein intake can cause metabolic problems that could cause a child to wet more or less but does not cause bedwetting.

5. What is the role of parents?

Common bedwetting is not a mental or learning problem, and punishing your child will never provide a solution. In fact, a child who is punished for wetting the bed can develop emotional problems which may make the bedwetting problem more intense. Accusing or threatening the child could make the child’s condition worse. Every child is different and most children outgrow bedwetting. Parents should be helpful for supportive treatments to be effective.

My daughter is 7+ years old and once in awhile she has the problem of bed wetting. May I request you to suggest me the way out.

Many bedwetters are misdiagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Symptoms of a bedwetter’s deep sleep disorder, such as the inability to stay focused or to concentrate, are almost identical to those of ADD/ADHD. For 32 years, the Enuresis Treatment Center has successfully treated thousands of people from around the world by correcting an unhealthy deep sleep pattern. One this pattern is corrected, the bedwetting is permanently resolved, and the ADD/ADHD symptoms often abate. The Enuresis Treatment Center has put together an informative guide to understanding and treating bedwetting. This free bedwetting guide is available to download at www.freebedwettingguide.com

Continue and gradually reduce the dosage on doctors advice. Never discontinue the tablets on your own without doctors advice
