I'm hoping to get a response that will validate my feelings here... I think I will.
My 6 year old wet his bed last night. He wets the bed MAYBE 2x/ year. I know that there are many children that wet the bed more often, for some it's even a problem... One that, in my opinion, is not their fault.
So I was talking with my best girlfriend and casually mentioned that Owen wet the bed. She made a remark that I must have been furious. I was blown away. I responded 'how could I get furious, when he's SLEEPING. He's not fully aware of his body while not being fully concious'.
She was now blown away. She said that any other mom would have not been happy. That if her 4 year old wet the bed, she would be very angry with him.
This breaks my heart for this little boy, but also makes me think, is her comment about me being too lax about things right?
Regardless of the answers I see here, I would NEVER get upset with Owen (or Caleb) for wetting the bed. If it was a regular occurance, I might get FRUSTRATED, but would NEVER NEVER NEVER make him feel as though he's done something "wrong" or "bad". I would not be too keen on allowing it to continue, but I would work WITH my child on finding a way to help him stop. I'm pretty sure that when children wet the bed, they're not overly thrilled, and feel somewhat uncomfortable about it, themselves.
How would you react/ How do you feel when your children wet the bed on accident?? Am I really alone on my position???
