Chapter 18 of Clinical Notes on Disorders of Childhood. In this chapter, Winnicott relates difficulties of interpreting parent’s false modesty when interviewed about micturition and defecation. Winnicott discusses the microscopic examination of urine, albuminaria, the presence of pus, red blood corpuscles and threadworm. He also discusses enuresis as a likely and even normal consequence of the great emotional strains and stresses of infantile development. He describes possible treatment for enuresis, distinguishing between the child’s point of view, the parent’s point of view, and the doctor’s point of view.
