Bedwetting Scare Tactic

mean_doctor                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I just completed a consultation with a mom from Canada. In addition to the chronic bedwetting, her son, 9.5, has been experiencing daytime urgencies, frequencies and leaking. At his last visit with their pediatrician, her son was told he was lazy, and should be trying harder. Mom said she shocked and saw her son shrink in shame from hearing those negative comments. Their doctor also dismissed mom’s concerns even when mom shared that her niece, 19, was still wetting the bed.

I responded with “How sad for you and your son. We wish doctors would listen more to parents. Please contact your pediatrician and tell him to contact our clinic.”

“We will take the time to explain more about sleep disorder that is causing the chronic bedwetting and the toll untreated bedwetting can take.”

Mom replied, “If this is what he is telling my son, he may be misinforming and scaring other children who wet the bed. How does that help children stop wetting the bed? ”
