To get a kid's perspective on bed-wetting, we talked to a 12-year-old boy who only recently stopped wetting the bed. He shares his experience and offers reassuring advice to both parents and kids who are dealing with bed-wetting.

How did you feel about bed-wetting when you were going through it?

I felt embarrassed and self-conscious because it made me feel different from other kids. I thought I shouldn't be wetting the bed because I was older.

How do you feel about bed-wetting now?

Looking back on it, it doesn't seem that bad because it's not like I was going around telling people about it. It was private. And now I know for sure that no matter what your age is, you'll eventually get over it.

What helped you cope with bed-wetting?

My parents kept telling me that I wasn't strange or different and that it was okay for me to have this problem. They told me I'd eventually get over it, and that helped me feel a little less self-conscious. It helped that they never made a big deal out of it and just kept telling me I was normal.

If you could tell your 10-year-old self something about bed-wetting, what would you say?

I know it's strange and weird to still be wetting your bed, but you're going to get over it, and it's going to be fine. It'll end eventually. You don't have to feel self-conscious because you're not the only one.

What's your advice for parents, and what message should they send their kids?

I'd reassure parents and encourage them to send their child the message: It's not uncommon. You're normal. You're not going to have this problem forever.

What tips do you have for kids?

At sleepovers, go in the bathroom and change into your [training pants or disposable underwear] and pajamas in private. If a kid sees and makes fun of you, don't react and don't show that you're bothered. Say, "This isn't uncommon. It happens to a lot of kids, and I just happen to be one of them." And then just let it go and don't worry about what other kids are saying. It's strange right now, but then it'll be over and you'll realize it wasn't that big a deal.

    Blog design is still important, and whatever you say, but even from a physiological point of view, it is more pleasant to read text on a white background, surrounded by some kind of nice outline. Of course, brightness is needed, but after all, a person does not come to the site in order to spend 5 seconds here, he wants to read something - who is new, who is to view comments on blogs. I, too, sometimes come back because of the comments. to see what the people poured there. There are times when the topic is developed that the tin turns out. Loose. Sorry. while.
