100 years ago: Enuresis in childhood

23 Apr 2018Registered users

It is easy to see the ill-effects of circumstances which add new force to the fear of failure or shake the confidence in the control which has been regained.  Thus, a boy, an only child, who had suffered from enuresis till his seventh year, had regained complete control till his eleventh year, when he went to school. In his dormitory at school was a boy who had enuresis, and was being fined and punished by the schoolmaster. The enuresis at once reappeared and continued unchecked while he was at school.
