Conditioning your child to avoid wetting the bed


These conditioning methods are also known under a series of other monikers, from “Pavlovian conditioning” to respondent conditioning. Employing these strategies are as easy as pairing the undesired behavior with a mild consequence.

Taking care of a 5-year old with hair past her bottom can prove quite challenging, as I'm sure you can imagine. For the last few months I've used a combination on J's hair that has been working well for us, but it's always fun to try new products and new smells.
