-The real deal causes.

– What’s not causing it!

– Genetics

– Hormones

– What you the parent can investigate which may hold the answers.

-What will help.

-What will hinder.

-What treatments are available.

-Will they really just grow out of it?

Most importantly this workshop is developed from the most up to date research and training on nocturnal enuresis and incontinence. So many parents in Ireland are told from toddlerhood to late childhood that they will just grow out of bed wetting but there is more we can look at, more causes than are typically discussed with parents.
