Daytime urinary accidents (1454)

Key points below

Daytime wetting can be embarrassing. However, it is quite common in children. 

What can I do to help my child stop having accidents?

Have your child: 

Praise small steps or give rewards. Try things like a sticker for every dry day, and then give a small toy after 7 stickers. Do a fun activity when your child remembers to go to the bathroom every 2 to 3 hours.

Your child’s healthcare provider will decide if any tests or medicines are needed.
