If the child is unable to urinate during night or day sleep or when awake, it causes the child to wet. In general, children wet their bottoms up to 2-3 years old. Day control should be 2 years old and night control 3.5-4.5. If the child is still wetting under these ages, a pathological condition can be mentioned. In the period before this age, wetting the child's diapers does not have any pathological value. Because of the child's developmental tempo, the child has not reached sufficient physiological maturity.
Enuresis (subwetting) is the most important of all behavioral disorders, both in terms of occurrence and being a difficult situation for children and parents. The frequency of lower wetting in children is between 10-15%. According to the results of the study, lower wetting is more common in boys than in girls.
What are the reasons?
Inadequate education provided by the family is an important cause of lower wetting. Negative approaches include the fact that parents do not see lower wetting as a problem, the attachment of a child under advanced age or the provision of very strict toilet training. Especially the start of toilet training very early, waiting for the bottom wetting to stop suddenly and giving a punishment to the child who wets them are examples of the strict approach. There is probably a strict toilet training in families with insufficient emotional interaction. In the examinations, it was seen that one or both of the children who wet the diapers wetted the diapers in their children. In addition, it was found that children who wet the diapers had more severe sleep.
What is the treatment?
Bottom wetting comes in two ways. In the first one, the child never gained urine control. Despite the age of 4-5 years continues to wet. This may be due to organic origin or growth retardation, as well as the lack of toilet training provided by the family. Causes of organic origin include any disease or some abnormalities. Children with developmental delay also gain urinal control and toilet habits as a condition for later development than their peers.
