Bed-wetting is only considered a problem in children over six or seven years. Luckily, at this age most children are big enough to understand simple bed-wetting solutions. They may even surprise you by their ability to grasp what's going on and their enthusiasm to tackle the problem!
How they respond depends a lot on how you handle it. Getting angry, impatient or making a fuss may not only make things worse, but could also make your child feel sad and bad about themselves.
So tread carefully. Be kind, patient and understanding. Keep in mind that nocturnal enuresis happens by accident. And don't be shy either: talk it over like you would any other regular event.
