Today in Masthead-Based Hilarity

Posted by on Wed, Mar 12, 2014 at 10:58 AM


As every single reader of The Stranger's print edition is aware, Charles Mudede is listed in the masthead as Parenting Editor. I believe he earned the title after a series of Slog posts displaying his superior parenting ability. (At least one was about forbidding his son to cry, while at least one other was about the silver lining of one child killing another, and for the record, all of Charles' actual children are alive and well and flourishing.)

Anyway, I kind of forgot all about Charles' stature as Stranger Parenting Editor until this email landed. Enjoy.

Hi Charles,

I wanted to introduce you to Dr. Jacob Sagie and Tal Sagie, who for the past 30 years have helped over 30,000 patients get over their bedwetting problem. I believe that they can be a wonderful resource for you for any related parenting articles or research for the The Stranger.

While not the ‘sexiest’ of topics, bedwetting is one of the most frustrating problems that millions of parents will face this year. And despite it being a condition that affects a sizable percentage of both younger and older children, it can almost always be fixed- quickly, easily and without medical intervention. Utilizing his vast experience and practical application, Dr. Sagie, together with his son Tal, himself a child bedwetter whose condition motivated his father’s lifelong passion, has developed a new approach to bedwetting treatment, called THERAPEE...

The THERAPEE program utilizes a specially designed bedwetting alarms re-engineered to promote safety and ease of use, and combines it with an interactive web-based therapy program. The child, alongside his or her parents is offered a personalized treatment plan that can take into account almost any situation and has a 90 percent success rate (meaning completely dry nights) within a period of three to six months.

For most parents, the option to see their child no longer wetting the bed is a huge relief. Beyond the costs of pull-ups (and its negative impact on the environment) and endless loads of laundry, bedwetting is a major blow to a child’s self-esteem and can have longer term psychological impact. Many (if not most) doctors will say that a child will grow out of the problem and indeed they likely will. But that can often be only after years of suffering from countless nights that could have been prevented.

I would welcome the chance to provide you with more information and a chance to test the THERAPEE system so you will quickly understand the tremendous potential behind this development.

Those bedwetting alarms don't work. If your child has a problem with bedwetting, you may want to look into the possibility that they have an allergy to cow's milk. Ask your pediatrician.

It's bad enough that it's called "therapee"; do they really have to put it in all caps as well?

That may well be the only win among Slog's Shutterstock picks.

The ability to hold it while sleeping, or wake up when needing to pee, is controlled by a biological switch in the brain (very technical term). In some kids this doesn't flip until they are 8 or 9. There is NOTHING wrong with the kid. There just needs to be some patience. This kind of bullshit pisses me off.

Christ, how does that quack's son feel at being called out as a bedwetter IN HIS OWN GODDAMN DAD'S MARKETING?

FINALLY! Some substance in this fishwrapper. I’m tired of hearing about Mayors and socialists and gun deaths and cocaine and grand juries and bands and art. Let’s get some column inches on bedwetting for a change!

It's almost like adults' reaction to bedwetting is why it's so traumatizing for kids.

I can speak very highly of Dr. Sagie and this program. My 10 year old daughter just finished it and has been completely dry for the past two months. We tried several other suggestions from our pediatrician and even tried Chinese medicine and nothing helped.
What I like about it is that it is completely safe and unobtrusive - the alarm/device doesn't touch the child.
The more I think about it, the more I am frustrated that doctors kept telling us to wait for her to grow out of it. It added years of stress, embarrassment and frustration to our daughters life for no reason, not to mention the extra costs for diapers/pull ups and endless loads of laundry.
