Welcome to Dry Time Kids
About Children's Bedwetting
Bedwetting is a very common childhood condition which causes a great deal of stress in the family.
For parents, it can be a difficult and complex problem to manage.
One in ten children between the ages of six and eight will wet the bed regularly.
Bedwetting is most commonly caused by:
Not waking up in response to a full bladder.
The production of more urine at night than the bladder can store.
A family history of bedwetting.
Beyond five years of age, bedwetting is a diagnosable condition called Enuresis.
The Dry Time Kids program provides an evidence-based treatment with an experienced child psychologist.
Using the practitioner-assisted approach, which incorporates the use of regular support and a bed wetting alarm, has been shown to work for 77% of children. Psychologist clinics such as Dry Time Kids reach higher rates of success with one on one support from a child psychologist. Recent research demonstrates a success rate of 92% achieved when the practitioners were psychologists. Data from the Dry Time Kids Clinic reveals an even higher success rate - 97% of children who completed treatment were dry!
