Parenting a Child with Toileting Issues – Zoom

A workshop for Adopters, Foster Carers, Kinship Carers & Professionals working with children in care.

Statistics highlight that wetting and soiling problems affect children in the care system more often than children living with birth parents. This can continue for much longer even after a child is in a stable placement and can add a layer of frustration for their adoptive parents, foster and kinship carers. It is a distressing problem for all involved and yet, often embarrassing to talk about.

This workshop will not explore the physical causes in any great length but will focus on the emotional causes of wetting, soiling & smearing. It will go through some of the things that parents/carers can do to help on an emotional and practical level as well as when and where to get help.

This workshop will be delivered by Kathryn Fenton, co-author of the book with the same title written for CoramBAAF. Kathryn is a Social Worker and Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist with many years of experience working with children & young people who were fostered, adopted and/or moved to kinship care.

Date: Thursday 3rd March

Time: 7-9pm

Cost: £15 per Berkshire Parent/Carer, £20 per non-Berkshire Parent/Carer, £20 per Professional
