Such a tragic story, however it needs to be told for any parent that thinks it's OK to punish their child by depriving them of water as a bedwetting solution.UPI.com/news_story (note: require Adobe Flash to view)
Things to keep in mind for any bedwetting child
* Don't blame your child. Bedwetting has nothing to do with a child being lazy or stubborn--after all, no one really wants to sleep in a wet bed.
* Don't shame your child. Belittling your child when he has an accident, telling him he's not trying hard enough, may not only damage his self-esteem, it can make his effort to stay dryer even harder.
* Don't blame yourself. You're not the reason your child wets the bed. Bedwetting often runs in families. Chances are good an aunt, uncle or grandparent also wet the bed.
* Don't punish your child for wetting the bed. Changing sheets every night can be frustrating, but punishing your child won't help him stay dry. Instead, give him praise and rewards for following his bedwetting treatment.
* Don't lose patience. Getting to reliably dry nights can be a long, whole-family process. Stay patient and positive.
* Don't make it hard on everyone. Find a solution, like diapers, that work for the child and for the family.
