I was a Bed-Wetter even at age 18: AKROBETO Reveals.
Please Follow me for more Updates
Bed-wetting — also called night time incontinence or nocturnal enuresis — is involuntary urination while asleep after the age at which staying dry at night can be reasonably expected.
Soggy sheets and pajamas — and an embarrassed child are a familiar scene in many homes especially in Africa.
Generally, bed-wetting before age 7 isn't a concern. At this age, your child may still be developing night time bladder control.
After age 7 if a child still continues bed-wetting then that becomes a problem and a disease that needs to be taken care of.
Akwasi Boadi popularly known as AKROBETO a Comic Actor and a TV. presenter revealed he was a Bed-wetter up till age 18 and over before he was able to stop bed-wetting. He said it on United Television that even his family especially his elder sister used to mock him and he became very humble in the family doing most of the household chores because he didn't want to be humiliated for bed-wetting anytime he refuse to do any chores or run errands.He narrated that even a friend once stoled someone's money and hide it in his room but because of the scent that was in his room the police couldn't enter his room to search there for the money so they assumed the money isn't in the room and went away.
He said he was able to stop when he moved to stay with Apostle Engineer Kwadwo Sarfo who made him feel confident without mocking him of his problem.
Parents needs to know that they find a way to help their children rather than beating and embarrassing them.
Most children outgrow bed-wetting on their own — but some need a little help. In other cases, bed-wetting may be a sign of an underlying condition that needs medical attention.
Consult your child's doctor if:
-Your child still wets the bed after age 7
-Your child starts to wet the bed after a few months of being dry at night
- Bed-wetting is accompanied by painful urination, unusual thirst, pink or red urine, hard stools, or snoring.
