My 7 yr old was put on some meds to help her control her bladder. She holds more pee than an average adult & leaks during the day when she laughs or coughs/pees the bed at night. Her father & I share joint custody. We swap out every other week & he now refuses to give her the meds. He thinks she doesn't need it. Since she has began this med she has had one accident. I don't know what to do. I hate the thought of her being on meds, but I also hate the thought of her not going to friends house when she's older bc she's scared of peeing in the bed. Her self esteem will be lower than low. I would much rather her be on meds now than to give her some type of mental detriment later. What do I do?
