Talking about wee and poo – parent / carer event

Talking about wee and poo - 23rd May 2024 • 19.00 - 20.30 • via Zoom

Join us for our parent and carer webinar, led by our Helpline Advisors looking at common bowel and bladder problems that children experience and how you can help overcome and manage them.

Our Helpline team will help you to understand how the bowel works, what can go wrong and what to do about it.

The session will include recognising constipation, and the importance of treatment, as well as working towards getting the poo in the loo!

We will explain how the bladder works, look at why it is essential to sort the bowels first, and why it is so important to have plenty to drink.

We will talk about how to recognise when the bladder is misbehaving, and what to do about it, plus ways to encourage your child towards the potty or toilet.

PLEASE NOTE: these free events are for parents and carers. If you are a health, education or early years worker interested in events to support you in your professional capacity please see our programme of training courses here.
