Toileting issues in children and young people who are past the age of toilet training are a particularly sensitive, taboo subject. However, they are not uncommon, particularly in fostered and adopted children, where they are the most commonly reported physical problem. For this group, the physical explanations that can often solve the issue in the general population frequently do not address the deep-seated reasons or possible solutions to this distressing condition. Children and families can be left distressed and exhausted, while underlying emotional or psychological issues are missed. This new title in the Parenting Matters series provides authoritative, clinical guidance for carers and adopters on why this issue can occur and what can be done about it. In straightforward language, it explains how children’s difficult early experiences can affect their behaviour, the various physical, emotional and psychological causes, how to engage with social work and health professionals to explore this difficulty, and what solutions may be offered. In the second half of the book, a range of case studies describe what it is like to parent an affected child, how families have managed the situation, and how solutions were found for the children’s problems. This book is part of CoramBAAF’s Parenting Matters series which explores many of the health conditions commonly diagnosed in looked after children.
