This may be an opportune time for your family to tackle bedwetting. As long as your family is healthy, being at home every night without many sports and activity commitments is a perfect time to use a bedwetting alarm.
In my book, “Seven Steps to Nighttime Dryness”, I discuss finding the right time to use a bedwetting alarm. Not having a rigid morning wake-up schedule can be a perfect time for parents to help their child wake to the bedwetting alarm during the night. If you feel a little sleep-deprived during this initial training period, having a few extra minutes of morning sleep is great.
Bedwetting alarms effectively end bedwetting in 80-90% of children who use them. The average child takes 8-10 weeks to become permanently dry. That means if you tackle bedwetting now, by the time summer and the end of the pandemic hits, your child will be on their way to dryness.
If you do nothing, your school-aged child has an 85% chance that he or she will still be wetting at this time next year. Most families whose children become dry comment, “Wow, why did I wait so long?” Bedwetting alarms continue to be the most effective way to speed up the development of nighttime dryness.
Of course, if anyone in your family is ill, you need to wait until everyone is healthy to tackle bedwetting. Once everyone is back to normal health, you’ll be ready for summer camps and fun activities when they finally happen.
