The Magic Spell: Ridiculous
Children who live with ridicule learn to feel shy
How many times has someone said " Oh, come on, can't you take a joke? I was only kidding." The truth of the matter is that ridicule is cruel and it's usually not just in fun. It hurts and children are extremely sensitive to this. They are actually placed in a no-win situation because if they objects to what has been said, they may be ridiculed even more but if they accept it, their self esteem suffers.
Never punish or ridicule your child
Bedwetting can be a frustrating problem to deal with as a parent, but it's even more embarrassing for a child. Punishing them or raising your voice will only make your child feel ashamed. Institute a no teasing policy by ensuring their siblings understand that ridicule is unacceptable. Also, don't discuss your child's bedwetting problem with others in their presence.http://www.babble.com/kid/9-tips-for-coping-with-bedwetting/
