Every parent of a bedwetter should read this post by Gabrielle at DesignMom – and the comments (over 150 so far).
The money shot:
Yep. I wet the bed until middle school. And had a few memorable “accidents” into high school and beyond. As a child, of course I was painfully embarrassed about it, but as an adult it’s basically the least traumatic thing in the world. Outside of parenting conversations, I never give it a second thought.
Right. Let me repeat that: As an adult, having wet the bed until middle school – and even into high school – is basically the least traumatic thing in the world. I never give it a second thought.
The comments (over 150 so far) are intelligent, compassionate and good humored. Most are from mothers who themselves wet the bed until a relatively late age, or who have children who are wetting the bed at a relatively late age.
I have a few observations based on the comments, which I plan to post over the next few days.
