Bedwetting and restraint learning

restraint - TheraPee blog - bedwetting help
Most children who experience bedwetting (about 80-70%), do not have a medical or psychological problem that causes it. These are perfectly healthy and balanced children in all aspects. In fact, there are no external signs that will allow us to identify these children.

Bedwetting, then, is seen in these cases as a ” deficiency in restraint learning”. These children did not learn to operate the restraint mechanism in a state of sleep. The mechanism exists in their brain, but does not recognize the signal sent from the filling bladder. Instead of contracting the sphincter muscles and holding back, they do the opposite – by relaxing the sphincter muscles, which eventually causes bedwetting.

These bedwetting children are defined as “essential” bedwetters. Bedwetting is defined is an idiopathic symptom for them. An idiopathic symptom is a symptom that stands on its own and is not an expression of another problem.

It is different from a normal symptom which is an expression of a particular problem, for example a symptom of urination resulting from mental stress on the child (psychological cause) or a symptom of urination due to urinary problems (medical cause).
