More than just a book about bedwetting, Dr. Bennett’s comprehensive guide is written in a child-friendly, conversational tone and includes activities for children, practical tips and Q&A sections for parents, and a detailed program for overcoming bedwetting. Topics covered include waking-up practice, bedwetting alarms, and handling sleepovers. Humorous cartoon characters and simple activities keep school-aged children engaged, and real-life examples of children with the same problem show young readers that bedwetting is a common problem that they can overcome with a little bit of time and effort. Intended for school aged children and their parents.
"Every year, 15% of children who wet the bed become dry without any intervention. This fact has led many doctors to simply reassure patients that the condition is not serious and that it will go away on its own. The problem with this approach is that bedwetting can affect a child's self-esteem. Therefore, it's short-sighted to ask a child to wait years to become dry if treatment can expedite the process."
