Night. I have a friend who is 12 years old, from a young age he likes to wet his bed. Still small, it’s natural, right? But why is my friend this one peeing continues until now (12 years old) even though before her friend used to pee but it seems useless Is there a problem in his organs or what? How to handle it? Thank you
Bedwetting is a condition where a person cannot hold their pee while sleeping. In the medical world this condition is known as enuresis.
Enuresis in infants under 2 years is still considered normal because they are not able to control the urinary tract. Therefore, children over 2 years of age should ideally be taught to do defecation and bowel exercises by their parents (toilet training).
The habit of bedwetting can still occur until toddlers, but ideally it will stop by itself when entering elementary school age. Some conditions that can cause a child to experience the habit of wetting the bed outside of normal are =
Small bladder size
a lot of urine production.
persistent urinary tract infection.
Therefore, ideally your friend should be examined by a pediatrician. With direct examinations and further medical tests such as blood tests, urine tests and other tests by a pediatrician, the doctor can understand the causes of bedwetting that occur in your friends. Give support to your friend so that your friend can overcome his problem without making him feel inferior or even stressed and anxious excessively.
If you can, ask your teacher or parent to tell your friend's parents so they can handle their complaints properly.
Some tips you can give your friends are =
Get used to pee before bed.
Avoid drinking too much at bedtime.
Invite parents to wake children up at night to go to the toilet and pee, of course, this needs to be accompanied so that the child becomes more accustomed and feels loved.
Give small rewards when the child does not wet the bed, so that the child is more motivated.
I hope this helps.
