Intro to blog

There are many issues in psychology that both interest and puzzle me but there is one in particular that I am especially curious about and interested in-people's attitudes toward various management techniques for nocturnal enuresis(the clinical term for bed-wetting) particularly in older children,adolescents,teenagers,and adults. Although this is not a psychological issue per se; how people react to,interact with,and perceive individuals using protective garments to manage their bed-wetting has psychological ramifications for these individuals. Depending on how other people respond to the incontinent individual the ramifications can be either positive or negative. I have read a fair amount about this subject and this blog is a distillation of this knowledge.The information on this blog will be useful for both parents and bed-wetters.In my readings on the subject I've noticed that there is a great deal of stigma associated with using diapers for older children,adolescents,and teenagers that wet the bed and one of the reasons for me writing this blog is to alleviate some of this stigma and help youngsters realize that it's okay to wear diapers to bed.Some of the topics I'll be discussing in this blog are the types and brands of diapers available to manage bed-wetting(at seems like most parents are only aware of products like pull-ups and “Goodnites” and while these products work for some kids other children leak through them.In my blog I discuss other options like pin-on diapers covered with plastic pants and disposable briefs), psychological techniques a youngster can use to cope with wearing diapers to bed,my thoughts on the stigma surrounding diaper use in older children,adolescents,and teenagers that wet the bed,and ideas I have for a reward system designed to encourage a reluctant youngster to wear diapers to bed.I hope you enjoy the blog
