@anongoodnurse Regarding and , I feel I'm out of my depth. The way I understand it, enuresis occurs at an age when children usually can control their bladder, around age 4. Looking at the questions tagged , there are some about much younger children, e. g. one is 2 years old. Would tag make sense in such cases? I've been reluctant to edit such questions so far.

@AnneDaunted Gosh, that's a good question. I've never seen the term enuresis applied to a situation below the age of five either, and a quick look at the literature (the general literature, like treatment options) shows that attempts to treat don't begin before age 5.
 
1:59 PM
@AnneDaunted - OK, to make matters worse, there are several definitions used for enuresis. One of the most popular is the ICCS:The International Children's Continence Society has developed standardized terminology for lower urinary tract function and malfunction in children [1].

Enuresis (synonymous with intermittent nocturnal incontinence) refers to discrete episodes of urinary incontinence during sleep in children ≥5 years of age [1].
Before then, it's referred to as urinary incontinence, or bed wetting. :(
Technically, I guess babies are incontinent, but that's hardly a disorder in babies.
 
@anongoodnurse Thanks for all the information! So, in essence, we can't get rid of or make it a synonym of ?
 
So I'm stuck as well.
Right. Just what I was thinking (we need bed wetting.)
 
An option would be to phrase the tag wikis accordingly, i. e. that is only for older children and for younger.
 
(Oh, the ICCS does take note of diurnal enuresis as well...)
@AnneDaunted I would go with that.
That makes sense.
 
And then decide on a case-by-case basis, especially with children around age 4 or 5
 
2:05 PM
People may or may not follow the description of the tag. That's not possible to control.
 
True, but that's what editing is for :)
 
Speaking of tag wikis, what I liked and wanted to mention here
On MSE there is a deprecated tag when instead more precise tags should be used (, [deleted-questions] etc.).
 
@AnneDaunted You lost me on "deprecated tag"... :-/
 
Its tag wiki says "DO NOT USE THIS TAG! Please use a specific tag instead, such as [deleted-questions], [deleted-accounts] or [vote-to-delete]."
 
2:08 PM
Oh, ok.
I'm not sure of the utility on this site (MSE is, like, a thousand times more active?)
 
This may be useful in some cases when burninating the tag may take some time
 
But I certainly don'tobject to specificity in tags.
I'm fine with it, then.
 
In some special cases, some others have been burninated. But it might have been useful, e. g. for
 
Yeah, that one was rather useless!
Thanks again for all your efforts. Your diligence is remarkable!
 
is also a candidate - I'm not sure it has much use (not when the exact age is known, anyway) even if age is unknown. I guess people use it because they have to tag their question and this one is kind of obvious
 
2:12 PM
Yeah, there is a difference between newborn, infant, baby, toddler, preschooler...
But who is going to know that? Not a lot of people.
 
I do understand the new users. It's not that easy to wade through all those tags
 
My younger dog thinks it's unreasonable of me to want to be in bed still at this hour (10:14 am here). What's wrong with him?
Got to get up out of bed now (what a slug I am!)
:)
 
Nothing, he just wants something from you :-)
 
@AnneDaunted Always!
 
My cat is also merciless
 
2:16 PM
Usually balls, tricks, cheese, to go out, cheese, cheese, and cheese/
@AnneDaunted What kind do you have? I have no cats at present. :(
 
he loves cheese so much?
 
Like air!
 
it's a short-haired cat
not a special breed or so
 
Before dogs, I had cats. I love cats. We once had 13 cats. I have a sweet story to tell.
 
I'm excited to read that story!
 
2:20 PM
You probably have a particular breed, my son was educating me on them. I just thought they were "cats". If they have an "M" on their forehead, that's a specific breed, etc.
Sometime, then. Nice to 'see' you. :)
 
It's possible I have a specific breed, I don't know them
 
 
1 hour later…
3:47 PM
Nor do I. :)
 
4:44 PM
My lovely old cat enjoying Sunday morning sunshine
She's 17 or 18 so likes a snooze
We have had cats for 30 years or so, and will get a dog again once we have time... Just no time currently
Cats cope well with that. Dogs need much more attention.
 
5:13 PM
@RoryAlsop What a cute cat!
I like old cats
