Enuresis is more commonly known as bed-wetting. Enuresis is diagnosed when children repeatedly urinate in inappropriate places, such as clothing (during the day) or the bed (during the night). In most cases, enuresis affects the children’s personality, self-esteem and others psychological factors. Many Researches shows that the problem of enuresis significantly affects the self-esteem of children. Self-esteem helps a child to achieve our identity and to adapt to society. In a child, self-esteem is shaped by what they think and feel about themselves. Child who have high self-esteem have an easier time handling conflicts, resisting negative pressures, and making friends and develop good relations. Children with low self-esteem have a difficult time dealing with problems, are overly self-critical and can become passive, withdrawn, with depressed behavior. In this study we have tried to cover the impact of enuresis on self-esteem. It can be an asset for social value enhancement for enuretic children and their parents who are embarrassed in day- to- day life.
