My seven-year-old son still wets the bed, and both he and I are embarrassed about it. Is this normal at his age, and what can I do to help him stay dry at night?Alina Lynden, a helpline adviser for ERIC, the children’s bowel and bladder charity (eric.org.uk/bedwetting), says: “Wetting the bed is a common childhood condition. “However, it’s something which can have a huge impact on a child’s day-to-day life, affecting their self-esteem, emotional wellbeing, achievement at school and social life. Children may feel so embarrassed about their bed-wetting that they avoid sleepovers or going on school camp for fear of their ‘secret’ being discovered. Extra washing to deal with it and disturbed sleep can also take a big toll on family life.“There are lots of things you can do now to try and help him get dry. The most important thing to start with is to give him lots of support and reassurance – let him know it’s nothing … [Read more...] about Ask an expert: How can I help my child stop wetting the bed?

U.S. President Donald Trump stood firm in his belief that former special counsel Robert Mueller absolved him of any crimes, adding that he had every right to fire Mueller if he wanted to. Speaking with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in an interview segment broadcast Sunday morning, Trump dove into the Mueller investigation into the 2016 election, justifying his decision not to speak with the special counsel's team. While denying he ever had any such plans, the president also argued that firing Mueller would not have amounted to obstruction (but denied he ever had any such plans). Former White House Counsel Don McGahn has testified that Trump wanted to fire Mueller, which Trump disputed during the interview. "A president can't obstruct justice?" Stephanopoulos asked. "A president can run the country," Trump responded. "And that's what happened, George. I run the country." Reflecting the famous 1977 interviews between David Frost and former President Richard Nixon, Stephanopoulos asked … [Read more...] about Trump: ‘I run the country’
Voters across the Midlands are set to head to the ballot box once more for perhaps one of the most bizarre elections in the entire history of British politics. Despite the result of the 2016 European Union membership referendum, in which the UK electorate voted to leave the EU, we have still yet to agree a withdrawal deal. That means we are still in for at least the time being - and therefore have to take part in next week's EU elections on Thursday, May 23. The elections will see candidates for each of the UK's regions compete for a place in the European Parliament, which plays a key role in deciding EU policy, rules and laws. If they win the ballots for, in our case, the East and West Midlands, they will become Members of European Parliament (MEPs). The Euro elections come less than a month after people in Burton and South Derbyshire voted in the borough and district council elections. Elections for the European Parliament use a different kind of voting system to the one employed in … [Read more...] about European Elections 2019: Who can I vote for?
THOUSANDS of runners are preparing for the London Marathon tomorrow. Each year a group of pacers run among the crowd, but what are they and how can you become one? Here's the lowdown... What is a pacer? A pacer is an experienced runner who takes part in long races to help other runners, and sticks to a certain speed throughout. Pacers do this to allow other racers, who aim to complete the race within a certain time, to know just how fast they are going. Why are they running the marathon? Often pacers will form a cluster of people who want to finish the race in say three hours, and will motivate them to stick to the speed they need to go at. People often fail to anticipate how long they’ll be running for, and how much stamina is needed. Sticking to a pacer’s speed helps eliminate the problem of over-stretching yourself accidentally, and having all run perhaps 10 or more marathons each, they are very reliable aides. How can I become one? There are several ways to become a … [Read more...] about London Marathon pacers – what is a pacer, why are they running the marathon and how can I become one?
