A 6-year-old is a big child and a future pupil. The child manages everyday activities skilfully. The child is interested in a variety of games, but he or she still requires protection and time spent peacefully with parents and relatives.
Bed-wetting usually stems from a hereditary delay in maturing and is out of the child or parent’s control. Bed-wetting is considered to need monitoring if the child is 5–6 years old. The age for starting treatment is assessed individually. Limiting the amount of fluids drank in the evening and making sure that the child goes to pee before going to bed may decrease bed-wetting. However, these practices do not really teach the child how to stop wetting the bed. Night-time bed-wetting may be treated with the help of a mattress with a bed-wetting alarm. Diapers may also be used. Day-time bed-wetting often clears up by itself. If necessary, contact your own child health clinic for more information on treating bed-wetting.
