About Children's Bedwetting

Bedwetting is a very common childhood condition which can cause a great deal of stress in the family.

For parents, it can be a difficult and complex problem to manage as there is so much conflicting advice.  GP's may suggest to just 'wait it out'.  The question is - 'at what cost?'  In the meantime, children's self-esteem suffers they worry about sleepovers and camps and sometimes they watch younger siblings become dry at night.  

 

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 92% of children.  Psychologist clinics such as Dry Time Kids reach higher rates of success with one on one support from a child psychologist.  Data from the Dry Time Kids Clinic reveals an even higher success rate - 97% of children who completed treatment were dry!
