Staying Dry At School /
By Jude Roberts, Staff Writer
When children begin going to school,
most people assume that they will have very little
problem with the issue of going to the bathroom.
However, some children may have trouble with the ability
to control when and where they need to go, either due to
a physical challenge or because of a disease or illness
that doesnít allow for regular control over their
bladder or bowel functions.
Incontinence can be very stressful, embarrassing, and frightening to the
child. Hope can be found through several steps that
parents and other caregivers can take in order to help
an incontinent child feel well-adjusted, happy, and
secure throughout their school day.
