When you’re raising a family you don’t always have the time, energy or head-space to really map things out and create all the useful tools you need.

Parenting can be hard work and coping with bedwetting can be exhausting, frustrating and difficult.
Experts don’t fully understand why one child continues to wet the bed and another doesn’t. It could be a matter of development. Sometimes a child’s bladder is simply not developed enough to store urine for an entire night. Sometimes a child has not yet mastered the ability to recognise when their bladder is full, wake themselves up, and get to the toilet in time.
Getting your child, the help they need can be made much simpler by keeping a Night Time Diary. This will help your child’s doctor understand your child’s bedwetting better.Get this guide

Not all screen time is created equal.
It’s up to YOU to decide how (and how often) your child or teenager uses screens and whether their screen time is positive or negative. For instance, time spent on homework or other educational activities might not need to be as restricted as time spent playing video games.
For kids of all ages, screen time should not replace time needed for sleeping, eating, being active, studying, and interacting with family and friends.Get this guide
