Stitching and crocheting can be a fun and rewarding way to make a living, but running your own craft business can also be a lot of work. After a long day of putting in the hours, the last thing you want is to come home to a child suffering from a bedwetting problem. Though wetting the bed is common for children five and under, when it occurs past this age or reappears in the teen years, it’s time to take action. One of the best ways to keep your child dry from dusk to dawn is by purchasing a bedwetting alarm to condition their body to cease this embarrassing problem.
One of the main things to keep in mind when dealing with a child who wets the bed is not to punish them for it. There’s no way a child can control a bedwetting problem on their own and punishing them for it can actually make their bedwetting worse as stress can trigger the problem. You can also damage a kid’s self-worth and self-confidence in the process.
That’s not to say a youngster shouldn’t have the ability to wash and dry their own bed clothes and sheets. If there’s a washer and dryer in your house, it’s a good idea to train your child in how to use it. If nothing else, this will teach them to keep things clean. It could even lessen their embarrassment over bedwetting as they won’t have to come and get you every time they have an accident and need their things cleaned.
A useful method for training a child with a bedwetting alarm is to use a star chart on the fridge or someplace else easily visible. Let your youngster know that four straight gold stars, or a month without any type of wetting, means that they’ll be able to stop using the bedwetting alarm system, unless the bedwetting begins again.
Expect ups and downs, and the occasional relapse. You may not remember your own trials and tribulations of trying to stop wetting the bed, but you did eventually quit doing it. If your own parents are still alive, they’ll likely have some tales to tell you.
If you used a bedwetting alarm as a kid, you were likely required to accept whatever system your parents forced on you. If you feel up to it, and if your kid is old enough, allow them to help you when shopping for the specific alarm they’ll be using each night. It will help empower them and make them feel like they have more at stake in the conditioning process.
With these tips, you now know just how beneficial a bedwetting alarm can stop bedwetting problem. Once you’ve used this excellent tool to help keep your child dry, you’ll be able to get back to knitting and crafting for your small business. You’ll have one less thing to worry about, and the knowledge that your child is dry and happy.
