A children's book about wetting the bed and wetting pants at school.
A boy who is bright, interesting, quiet, sensitive, and adjusting. Blonde, blue eyes, white, white skin, freckles, pink lips, average build, not fat but not skinny. Deep voice. Enjoys chess, army men, and books.
Aidan had an amazing attention span. He could sit for hours and read a book. If it was a thin book he would read it over and over agian. If it was a picture book he would memorize the images. He enjoyed above all things sitting in the cool dirt under the tree in his front yard with his box of army men. He would set them all up into an elaborate display of strategy. Once everything was set up perfectl he would throw dirt clogs at the enemy.
Aidan was loved dearly by his mom, dad, and little sisters. They thought he was a pretty cool kid. He was excellent at chess and he was also protective of his siblings.
One would think that at first glance Aidan had a charmed life. There was just one little thing that was a constant problem. Aidan was constantly wetting his pants.
Now Aidan had moved recently across the country to a new town with a new school and new kids. It wasn't easy to move at this age. Especially so far away from his family and everything that he knew so well. So, wetting his pants made everything that much worse. Kids didn't want to be friends with the new kid who smelled. The new kid with the wet pants.
So Aidan's parents took him to the pediatrician. Dr. T felt that Aidan was having anxiety and adjustment issues from his big move. He told Aidan that he needed to talk to his parents about his anxiety. He also suggested that Aidan see a child psychologist in order to work through his difficulties.
One day Aidan wet his pants several times at school. As he walked he developed a horrible rash on his legs. The school nurse called his mom to talk to her about it. Everyone was so kind and gentle. "We can keep a set of his clothes in my office and I'll sneak his wet ones to his locker so that no one will see. It's very common for boys to have accidents. Don't worry. We won't let him be made fun of or embarrassed."
But, what to do? How to get Aidan to stop? I wish there was a book...why don't I write a book? About a charming little boy with a common problem. But, how will it end?
