So, son (8) is at school. They have been briefed as to water requirements through school day a number of times now. In casual conversation with teacher yesterday (who I have found to have a negative attitude re: drinks and continence issues previously) I find out that she is 'telling him to drink but he doesn't listen'. Yes, I say, that's why we have to stand over him at home and make sure he gets to the bottom of a cup. I ask about star chart the SENCO mentioned 2 weeks ago - 'Tried it. Didn't work'
Any suggestions? He's going to go onto medication for overactive bladder soon, but I'm not comfortable with doing that if he's not getting the volume of water he should (1.4 litres a day).
