comment 6-year-old bed wetting
maybe my questions and the answers are interesting for you: parenting.stackexchange.com/q/9186/1092 and parenting.stackexchange.com/q/16591/1092 ; you do not tell us, if you already contacted a doctor because of this issue.

comment How does food influence production of urine during the night?
don't worry - we are very reluctant with giving him salty food, I just wanted to know if it is possible that sweet food stimulates urine production. We try to restrict fluid intake in the evening, but it's difficult and I don't see systematic "results" yet...

comment How does food influence production of urine during the night?
thanks, Dan! It's not about the money for the water bill, but I do not want to change the bed sheets each morning (or even during the night), its a lot of work (and a lot of laundry as well, we have to dry it, wash it, dry it again...)! And yes, I know that waking him during the night does not help him learning to feel, if his bladder is full, but as I wrote it is necessary to avoid the first diaper to "overflow". We have to change it during the night to avoid a wet bed in spite the diaper

comment How can I teach my 5yo son to respect authority?
@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun as I don't know your son yet, I guess it is about mine. ;-) Anyway, I think it was Jesper Juul where I got heard the term "autonomous child", so it might be special but not unique to our boys.

comment How can I teach my 5yo son to respect authority?
p.s. on the other hand he can be a very friendly, polite and peaceful child which shows understanding and respect for the needs of others... and then shows those tantrums, it's like in The Stranger (Billy Joel): "It was then I felt the stranger kick me right between the eyes"

comment How can I teach my 5yo son to respect authority?
often, he then will try to get our of his room which ends in an absurd struggle. What has changed over the years: he calms down faster. When he was 3, it might have taken an hour he spent in his room angry, now it usually takes some minutes (max. 15) and he'll be coming out calm again and ready for talking normally. But in general he seems to want to be absolutely autonomous and often does not want other people to decide what he shall do or not do. He also often complains, that we parents are "mean" or "unfair". Never heard of ODD before, but sounds interesting :-)

comment How can I teach my 5yo son to respect authority?
interesting. Our son is nearly 7y now and it gets slightly better. He still wants to take his own decisions and often does not accept our "authority", he then gets very very angry, often loud and normally does not give up if he's a different opinion than his parents. Sometimes, counting 1-2-3 helps, but often it does not - he just has his own, unflexible will. We then sometimes make a time-out (send him to his room to calm himself, often he will not go deliberately, so in the end I'll carry him there trying not to get biten or hit by his hands/feet, closing the door after him.

comment How to deal with Encopresis in primary school?
@Jax: thanks for your suggestion! I'm not sure, but we will check. In fact, the school's director does not want primary schoolers to wander around alone in the building(s) and unfortunately, that makes sense. So we need a person, who cam help him in case.. We're working on a solution - I'll update my post soon.

@mxyzplk: you should write this ("hough your question could be more specific (if you mean "I want to leave them home alone for a week," then the answer is really different).") as a comment to the original question
