comment Is it ok to wake up my 3yo boy for a pee?
Just don't wake him up. Carry him to the bathroom and set him on the toilet. He'll most likely go without even waking up.

comment Want to be Fair / Equal but Still Realistic with Bedwetting Pre-Teens and Social Issues
My answer was not intended to be mean. If 1 in 65 children are affected then several kids within a group having the same issue would, statistically speaking, be odd. And I will edit my answer to be less abrasive

There is nothing in the question that suggests the cause of the issue is known. Yes, I know incontinence is an actual problem, which is why I suggested seeing a doctor.

comment Having older kids wear an apron at meal
Agreed. If a child that age is being careless and getting food on their clothes, then it's time for them to start helping with the laundry. That is the route I would go before trying to force them to wear an apron.

comment Is poor (20/40) eyesight common in 10 year olds?
Not that reducing TV isn't good for other reasons, but it does not cause vision problems.

@BobJarvis, I call it the Quarter Rule. First kid swallows a quarter, you rush them to the emergency room, by the fourth kid you're like "that's coming out of your allowance, kid"

comment Impact on kids NOT having TV?
I have three kids, ages 13,11, and 8. We got rid of our TVs when they were 4,3, and newborn. There have been no instances of this causing them problems at school that I know of. On the other had, they are all avid readers and do exceptionally well in school.
