Somehow a couple of weeks ago we had a problem: a child in the kindergarten had a week to piss himself a couple of times during his nap. This is the age of five, when we have already forgotten what a wet bed is! But the problem was solved. Very quickly and not at all as expected.
After the first incident, I just scolded that the child does not have spare panties. The fact that she was wetting her daughter a little during the daytime sleep, they learned purely by chance when they made the bed – she herself was silent as partisans. I was surprised, because we had not used spare underwear for over a year. And at home there are no such problems.
A day later, I again waited in the bag surprise. Now I had to take the nightie with me in the laundry, and in the kindergarten we dried everything, right down to the mattress. The teacher, an elderly woman and an experienced worker, let me advise you to take the child to the doctor. After all, this is something abnormal, so that the child suddenly began to suffer from enuresis.
Word by word, interesting details of the daytime sleep of my child have been revealed. It turns out that a year ago, when she only got into this group, they also had problems of a similar nature with her. During a nap, she suddenly broke into a scream, and squealed so that the staff had a cold heart.
They ran around her, trying to calm and understand what hurts her, what scared her. Until suddenly they found out that she just wants to go to the toilet. After a couple of such episodes, the situation was adjusted. But why they did not tell me, I did not understand.
Let’s judge our grandmother from your belfry – this child is so much in the mood of the family. Dad’s departure could not pass without a trace. It’s all nerves, you need to drink soothing herbs, go to the doctor, the psychologist and much more to do.
The key to our casket
I must say, I was surprised myself in this situation. Usually with such pressure from all sides, I start to panic and rush from side to side, clutching at everything. And then somehow did not give in to pressure. For the first time you talked to your daughter, they say, how can you sleep soundly? She liked the question, she agreed.
After the second episode, I realized that it was hardly a matter of deep sleep, even though she continued to repeat this legend. I clarified whether she went to the toilet before going to bed – the answer is also affirmative. In confusion, I did not press on and postponed the conversation.
In the morning before the kindergarten I tell her again: In the afternoon, if you want to go to the toilet, when you sleep, get up and go. To which the child objects to me: Mom, what if the window is open there? And here I understood the whole point of our enuresis.
Despite the fact that we do not like to obey my mother, my daughter is a very executive and obedient child. If they told the children not to run out of the bedroom to the group, because there is an open window there, it will not go there under any circumstances.
The teachers were very surprised: But we say, if you want to go to the toilet while you sleep, go. But they do not take into account the sequence of commands and features of my child. It does not matter what they said there as a whole. We act on the last heard command. And if it goes against previous ones, what was said earlier is ignored or forgotten.
Apparently, hysterics during sleep, which happened a year ago, are also associated with this discrepancy between the requirements in the child’s mind. But educators are difficult to judge. All children are different and it is very difficult to understand the logic of each of them.
Did the child surprise you with the logic of his actions?
