In the school, a nine-year-old student was reading a book and suddenly felt his trousers were getting wet. Soon he discovered the cause of the wet trousers. His mind was agitated and he worried about what if he was discovered and what they would think about him. Fear gripped him.  

He saw his teacher, his female friend, Susi and others were coming inside. He saw his friend had a small fish in a container. He went towards her and asked her to smack against his body. As expected, the water in the fish container spilled on his trousers. 

His teacher observed very accurately what really happened and that he on purpose ran into Susi so the water would spill on him. The student shouted for everyone to know that Susi spilled the water on his trousers. Immediately, the teacher took him to the next room and helped him to clean up his trousers. Susi came in and whispered in his ear, ‘’Did you not do it on purpose? I have wetted my pants a few times like this.’’


When is enuresis a problem?  John Hopkins University.

Many children may have enuresis from time to time. It can take some children longer than others to learn to control their bladder. Girls often have bladder control before boys. Because of this, enuresis is diagnosed in girls earlier than in boys. Girls may be diagnosed as young as age 5. Boys are not diagnosed until at least age 6.

Types of enuresis

Doctors divide enuresis into 4 types. A child may have one or more of these types:

  • Diurnal (daytime) enuresis. This is wetting during the day.
  • Nocturnal (nighttime) enuresis. This means wetting during the night. It’s often called bedwetting. It’s the most common type of enuresis.
  • Primary enuresis. This occurs when a child has not fully mastered toilet training.
  • Secondary enuresis. This is when a child has a period of dryness, but then returns to having periods of wetting.
