Parents should require older children, adolescents and teenagers to wear diapers to bed?
I've heard parents say it's okay if an older adolescent child or adolescent does not want to wear diapers to bed, as you care about wet clothes and bedding, but I think it sends the wrong message. I think it sends the message that it's OK to be unsanitary. As mentioned above, is unsafe and unhealthy (without talk about uncomfortable) to stay all night in wet sheets and clothing. The following analogy may help. If a girl has a section that was put in a support group to keep the blood-stained clothes and other things at home, and for health reasons. The use a layer of the bed should be considered differently layers is a bandage to a problem of bladder control. Whether young or out in the rain parents to see him wear a raincoat or an umbrella to prevent children from getting wet. All are water resistant and they all meet the public maintenance of the person is wet.
The conclusion is that people do not like getting wet and take precautions to avoid that happening. Leaving aside the concerns of being unhealthy and inconvenient for the moment, even if the child or adolescent is offered to wash sheets and clothes should speak for those who require more time and more work to wash a pile of wet sheets, blankets and pajamas Wash wet nappies and plastic pants.
I would now like to refer to the following. Many parents wonder if should be required of her eldest son, teenager, or teenager to wear diapers to bed if all methods to treat enuresis have failed and are filtered by the pull-ups "or" Goodnight ". The consensus seems to be that the child or adolescent must participate in the selection of This type of clothing to take to bed. Although I agree with this theory, in principle, in practice, it might work all the time. The reasoning behind this theory is that leaving the child or adolescent to be involved in decisions that feel more in control improvement the situation of self-esteem, which in turn make them feel less ashamed.
Many children, adolescents and young people feel child about people bedwetting and many believe that forcing them to wear diapers to bed that is making the decision on how to deal with pee hands in bed to make them feel even more like a baby. I can certainly understand this point of view, but in many situations parents make decisions for their older children or adolescents who are in their best interest, but they do not like. The use of glasses and braces are two things that come to mind. If young people do not wear glasses and braces at all. Is it like a stretch to apply the same reasoning for using layers to manage bedwetting? Besides, I think it would be less embarrassing and painful for the child or adolescent to wear diapers to bed with glasses or braces, after all, from layers are only used at night to her friends do not realize that glasses or equipment they will.
If it is good to give the autonomy of children and adolescents more than older children so they an adult may be safer and more responsible for a certain kind of knowledge that only experience. Choose a product suitable for incontinence is one of them there are not many trials and errors involved in choosing a product that works well incontinence. There many factors involved in selection of appropriate incontinence product type and level of incontinence, incontinence is either during the day night, or both, that the absorbent product and the efficiency that protects the individual, of how a sustainable, the budget of a person, the discrete form products are, how certain products for the effects on the skin of a person whether or not a person has the time and / or desire to wash diapers and panties plastic, etc. While adults have the capacity to influence those decisions and are able to make a good choice in the matter, many children and adolescents have not maturity, knowledge, experience and ability to make an informed decision in this situation. Your decision on what type of incontinence products to put to bed will be influenced by what they perceive as the image of napkins instead of how the product stays dry overnight.
Parents are in a better position to judge what kind of product will be better in handling child bedwetting. They know how the young man urine during the night and have experience of dealing with diapers when the child was a baby so they are familiar with absorbent pads diversified and effective. This puts them in a better position to assess how a particular product works on the Protection of Young and the bed. If a child or young person bedwetting current product does not offer adequate protection and if after weighing all the options of parents reach the pin on layers and plastic pants, disposable adhesive tape, or other elements will be better to keep the child dry at night, then the parents should have the last word on the matter.
The same is true for any medical problem. If the child receives treatment for a disease and define the method currently used is not to resolve or manage the problem correctly, then it is time to consider other action and ultimately the adult because of his experience of life is best qualified to make that decision. A layer must be treated differently other medical equipment for managing multiple medical problems such as an inhaler for asthma, a wheelchair from paralysis, a helmet, a vote for a broken arm, etc.
Another thing that intrigues me is that children wear diapers like babies protected from moisture, why should it change when they are older? Parents are saying, "So you're still wet, but you're too old to still protect you. "Although parents must be the last word on the subject do not think you should be cruel or insensitive this regard. There are also cases where parents have used coats to try to confuse children or adolescents to stop wetting the bed or as a form of punishment. I find reprehensible practice and a form of child abuse.
To return the child to cope with wear diapers upper or adolescent in bed, I think parents should be flexible but firm. Some parents are my "way or the highway" school parents while the approach may be necessary with some young people and in some situations and circumstances I think it is justified in this cases. Parents should be in place for youth to understand and help them realize it is in the interest of young people wear diapers in bed. As I said you need to demonstrate to people of all ages bedwetting and many of them wear diapers at night otherwise it would not make as many different sizes. Again I say this because there are so many different styles of nappy-band-in, pin-on, pull-on, etc, it means that there are benefits to some of them with certain people in certain circumstances. I want to emphasize those who wear diapers, even if it may be unpleasant, the alternative, waking up in cold, soaking wet sheets is much worse.
I would say the reasoning behind why you chose a type of layer on another. You can chat with them about the different types of beds available for managing enuresis Night and the advantages and disadvantages of each. For example, some people have problems with the input side because they move a lot at night, some people urinate more profusely other night, etc, some brands and types of layers are better than others to deal with these issues. In addition, some layers styles are more durable than others.
Finally, parents can choose a brand or style of the layer for financial reasons. For example, I read about a father who had an older child with a bedwetting problem and was wetter very heavy. Initially used for pull-ups to protect children, but because of the level of incontinence had to use three or more per night. The father had low income and could not afford to spend money in the amount of pull-ups needed for what happened to the pants and plastic pin-on diapers. These are some reasons to choose a type and brand over another layer. With almost all types of consumer purchases are a few brands and products that are more effective than others for various problems and situations more adequately the needs of the consumer, and so the layers do not exception.
I think it's important to talk about why they chose a particular style to manage layers of bed-wetting child for the following reasons: it shows that you are nice because you have feelings of the young about wearing diapers into account, shows that there is a decision arbitrary to demean or degrade the child or adolescent, and shows you the best interests of the child at heart. As a book on the psychology of the teenager who has "As teenagers growing autonomy, adults resignation control wise in these areas which the adolescent can make reasonable decisions and continues to guide adolescents in areas where the youth is a more limited knowledge. "At I think choosing a suitable product for the management of bedwetting fall into the latter category. Adults have more experience of life. This experiment of life makes them more effective in controlling their emotions and not let them in how to make important decisions particularly as regards health care.
Bedwetting is a very sensitive subject with most older children, adolescents and youth and therefore unlikely to be as objective as parents select the best product effective to manage their bedwetting. Because of concerns of young people in the picture of himself for choosing this type of product to make the bed will be dictated more by this criterion and the product protects the night.
As mentioned above is good for parents to talk with them about different products on hand to treat bedwetting and the advantages and disadvantages of each so that if there is disagreement on this type of product to make the bed of the parents can go further by requiring that a child or young person to take a product rather another. For example, it might be the case that the child may wish to use one type of product (eg pull on cloth diapers), while parents believe that the pin-on cloth diapers and plastic pants would be the best option. If so, parents may say something to this effect: "I know that you prefer to use the force on the layers instead of the pin-on diapers, but a number of benefits with the pin-on diapers. They move a lot at night is a very heavy wet. They tend to sleep with him. The pin-on diapers are more effective to address these specific problems, because they are thicker than the removal of layers and you're able to customize the material in the pin-on diapers, while a tensile layer, to put more material in the layer because they were collected. It may take some getting used to pin on diapers, but will ultimately be much happier because they will protect you much better than the removal of layers which in turn will make you feel more comfortable. Your mother and I thought of a reward system to encourage you to try them for a while. We think you'll be pleased with this real idea and I want to talk now. "A Again this, it is a child or young person to feel much better position than parents saying" you are using the pin on diapers and plastic pants to bed because I say! "
If the child or adolescent is reluctant to use a particular type of product on the bed Parents should certainly hear them and work with them to try to overcome their anxiety. This request patience, warmth and encouragement. I would also say something along these lines: "I realize that you are getting older and feels he we can to make the final decision in this matter, we treat it as a small baby or toddler, but we have experience in these issues and offer the products we choose to sleep better protection. They make you feel much more comfortable at night, then other products we distribute. "To return to my earlier analogy about using a cast, eye, or braces, is a bit embarrassing and unpleasant at first, but over time you get used to them and the person realizes that they are for their own good. The same is true for coats and pants Plastic a problem of enuresis
In discussing the reasons for its decision on what type of diapers to use for bedwetting help in a very important thing that you acknowledge their concerns about the wear layers and this makes it more likely that you do not try like a baby, and I respect enough to explain why you need a specific type of layer at night. I feel that this discussion with the child or adolescent with regard to the use of the reward system discussed above will help them feel less apprehension about the possibility of wearing diapers to bed.
I should also mention that there are situations where parents buy diapers for parents with problems of incontinence, as a parent suffering from Alzheimer's disease and there are cases of married couples treat bedwetting and the spouse of the bed wetter suggests that wearing diapers to bed. If enuresis in the joint, it can be an embarrassment to the initial idea to wear diapers at night, the bed is wet realizes that only the person sharing the bed with them and finally getting used to. In mentioning these scenarios for the child or young person who helps them realize they are not alone and that help to feel less ashamed of their parents, putting them in diapers at night. Will be able to say: "If parents buy diapers for the parents and the husband or wife of a wet bed suggest to wear diapers to bed, I guess it's not so bad that my parents are encouraging me to wear diapers to bed too. "
The last thing I want to mention in regard to older children, adolescents, or young person who may be wrong to accept diapers for bedwetting is as follows. Parents should let him know it is not unusual to feel this way. Adult Many incontinent have difficulty accepting the layers, but possibly also in agreement with that. As mentioned earlier would be a good idea for the child or adolescents to talk to other people in similar situations.
Under these techniques to help the young daughter accepts the layers may be needed for young people to talk to a mental health professional (if economically feasible) to help adapt to wear diapers to bed. It is my opinion that the use of all these approaches together, the reward system, discuss the reasons behind the choice of a particular type of layer, a positive self-talk, encouraging parents when the child is in trouble and / or discouraged by layers, talk to a mental health professional, and to mention the fact that adults other adults to use diapers to bed, you'll be able to internalize positive psychological aspects of these strategies. In turn, this will help cope with the idea to wear layers that will help dispel the bad image so they may have of themselves due to wear diapers to bed, and feel more confident because they are themselves the most effective protection to help build self-esteem.
I understand what I just said goes against the view taken by force most pediatricians, child psychologists and other professionals, but I think it's time to rethink our current attitude towards the management of enuresis night and discuss this issue in a whole new light.
How you respond to the use of layers to cope with bedwetting Night is a very personal matter. Some people have no problem to wear diapers to bed and are even excited to bring security and comfort they offer, while others need a significant amount of persuasion and motivation to use them. Parents should not be discouraged if this happens. It could take several months or more (depending on the individual) for young people feel perfectly comfortable using layers night.
Although it might take a while to get used to young to wear diapers to bed, the time of the child or adolescent realize how much more comfortable and make sure he or she feels. At this stage, have no problem putting diapers before bed. Become second nature to them. As you brush your teeth to see how to use layers just another part of your routine every night.
