One of the problems in kindergarten students (kindergarten) and grade 1 primary school (elementary) is to hold urine. They are reluctant to go to the toilet, and prefer to keep pee until the lesson ends.
“Toilets outside the classroom may be the cause: The child is embarrassed to have to raise a hand to go to the toilet and return to class,” said Toronto-based child psychologist Joanne Cummings.
Children who are reluctant to go to the toilet and hold urine constantly at risk of urinary tract infections. Therefore, parents should train the little one to want to urinate in the school toilet.
Reporting from Today’s Parents, Thursday (13/7/2017), both father and mother can teach children how important to urinate with props.
Use a water-filled balloon to explain what a bladder is and illustrate how urine should be removed. Indirectly, the child will remember to urinate in the school toilet.
Writings or pictures embedded in the bathroom to not hold urine can make children moved urinating while in school also needs to be done. They will imagine, what happens to the body when holding urine.
Also, do not punish or scold the child when caught catching urine at school. Remind the child to always urinate when it’s time.
