"Yeah, he wets the bed, but so did I. He'll grow out of it." Sure, he probably will. But in the meantime, a child who chronically wets may suffer from low self-esteem or feel restricted in his or her social life. Pediatricians and parents regularly respond to bedwetting by forbidding water after dinner, prescribing drugs or an alarm system, or even resorting to punishment, but attempts are often sporadic and not part of an organized plan. As a result, they're not always successful.
In Getting to Dry, authors Max Maizels (professor of pediatric urology), Diane Rosenbaum (child psychologist), and Barbara Keating (a nurse specializing in bed wetting) describe their system for analyzing your child's wetting problem and fixing it through a combination plan of behavioral therapy (carrying your child to the bathroom when he or she has to go), an alarm system, occasional drug therapy, and/or diet (no milk after lunch time, for example). They claim terrific success rates. Getting to Dry dispels myths and educates about enuresis, and then leads parents and kids step by step through the process of "getting to dry." The book also includes information for kids who wet during the day, as well as a superior troubleshooting guide that will help parents identify their child's specific problem and choose the appropriate steps to take toward a cure. --Ericka Lutz
This book provides a welcome service to parents beleaguered by a problem that is often misunderstood and inadequately addressed. While the authors make no claims that they can cure every case of bedwetting, they do provide a sensible and coherent course of action they assure will help a majority of affected families. -- Foreword

In our family we followed the program with the alarm system, since our boy's bed-wetting was due to deep sleep. Using the positive reinforcement and guidelines outlined in the book, our son was dry in less than 2 months. I just wish I had seen this book sooner.
