Parents often worry when their child has turned five years old and continues to wet the bed. That can be related to different causes such as: drinking a lot of fluids before sleeping at night, boys produce more urine than girls, pressure in the bladder due to constipation, or emotional problems.
The first thing to keep in mind is that children do not do it on purpose and are embarrassed by this, so avoid punishment. This is more common than imagined. Therefore, don't make the child feel like they are naughty with this happens. On the contrary, make him/her feel supported and that everything will be fine.
There are different treatments to help children stop wetting the bed. You must take the following steps to help your child stop wetting the bed. However, this may be a psychological issue that a specialist should investigate and deal with.
Do not compare your child, do not use him/her as an example, do not tease him/her, or allow other family members to do it. The child's self-esteem will be seriously affected if you do so.
Please, do not give the child liquids before going to bed, create habits of going to the bathroom before going to sleep, congratulate him/her every time he/she wakes up dry. On the days the child wakes up wet, ask them to help you change their clothes or to change clothes by themselves.
Again, it is important the child does not feel like they are being punished. You'll see that little by little, the child will stop doing it.
If, on the other hand, you observe that time passes and the child does not stop wetting the bed, it may be necessary to visit a specialist; this can be a physical or emotional problem. Many parents do not care that their children wet the bed, and when they reach adolescence and adulthood, they continue to do so. The faster you help your child, the better since it is easier to correct it in childhood.
THEME: SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS FOR KIDS AT HOME
HOW DO WE DO THIS ACTIVITY?
Topic: Experiments, how do we prevent children from wetting the bed?
Age: 4-6-year-old children
Goal: Through this science experiment activity, children will develop critical thinking motivated by discovering new knowledge.
Difficulty level: Average. This science experiments for kids at home activity is designed for children to do it autonomously and independently under adult surveillance.
- Precision in hand and finger movements
- Eye-hand coordination
- Following instructions
- Critical thinking
- A glass vessel
- Boiling water
- Colored pipe-cleaners
- A wooden stick
- A spoon
- A tray
(Adult help and supervision)
Pour the boiling water into the glass vessel.
Add four spoons of borax to the water. Stir gently to dissolve the crystals. This step must be done after pouring the water to prevent the dust from coming out and being inhaled by children.
Make a chain of hearts with the pipe-cleaners.
Put the chain of hearts into the water and wait 24 hours to see what happens. You can use the spoon to gently push the hearts into the water mixture. You can also use the spoon to lift the chain from the glass. Lay on a paper towel or a plate to examine the crystals that formed on the heart chain.

HOW TO DEVELOP THIS SCIENCE EXPERIMENT ACTIVITY WITH CHILDREN OF OTHER AGES?
CHANGES MADE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 4 YEARS OLD
You can do this science experiments for kids at home activity with younger children. To lower the difficulty level, you won't need to change the materials.
However, as it is an experiment where we use hot water, the adult must always follow the experiment and carry out the hazardous steps to avoid accidents.
The adult should also ensure that children do not inhale borax or its dust. In this way, children will carry out a science activity appropriate to their development and abilities.
CHANGES FOR CHILDREN OVER 6 YEARS OLD
You can do this science experiment activity with older children. To increase the difficulty level, you won't need to change the materials.
Children can experiment using water at different temperatures and in different quantities to observe how the phenomenon varies in each case.
It is also important that the adult help children pour the hot water to avoid an accident. In this way, children will carry out kids' activity appropriate to their development and abilities.
