WE’RE HERE TO HELP YOU WITH BEDWETTING INFORMATION, TOOLS AND SUPPORT
If you’d like to take your bedwetting research to the next level, there are plenty of Australian resources, which you may find helpful. If your child is old enough to use the internet, they may even like doing their own research, too!
How can DryNites® Pyjama Pants help with bedwetting and self-esteem?
Children build self-esteem and self-confidence as a result of successful experiences.
Due to their lack of success with respect to achieving nighttime continence, some children who wet the bed may suffer from low self-esteem and a lack of self-confidence.
By using DryNites® you can help your child to feel in control over the situation.
Encourage your child to take responsibility for managing their bedwetting – it is important however that this is not viewed as a form of punishment by either you or them – it is about encouraging independence and working as a team.
