In this reassuring, eye-opening book, noted urologist Samuel J. Arnold explains how almost all childhood bedwetting can be cured or controlled. Drawing on over 35 years of experience--and thousands of actual cases--Dr. Arnold illustrates how, contrary to conventional thinking, most bedwetting is caused by underlying physical conditions--conditions that often can be corrected quickly and effectively. And he dispels the harmful and mistaken notion that long-term bedwetting is caused by disobedience, toilet-training conflicts, or parental attitudes.
