Among enuretics, some individuals who suffer from involuntary drops of urine will discharge during the day. This typically happens in children ages four to eight.
Dribbling generally happens when the child is busy in an activity that requires mental concentration (e.g., watching TV, playing computer games). The child does not recognize the signal from the bladder, relaxes the sphincter muscle, starts to urinate, and stops immediately by contracting the sphincter muscle. The consequences of this behavior are the constant wet spots on the child’s clothes.
