The nurse is preparing a care plan for a 5-year-old with enuresis. Which of the following is an important nursing action to promote dryness?


•To promote dryness, it is necessary to teach children retention control training whereby the child drinks fluids and delays urination as long as tolerated to stretch the bladder for the purpose of accommodating larger amounts of urine.

•Enuresis is primarily a problem of delayed or incomplete neuromuscular maturation of the bladder. The condition is benign and self-limiting.

•Providing emotional support will promote healthy self-esteem not dryness.

•Diapers and catheterization will not help in training the child in bladder control.
