Actor Ian Ziering Opens Up About A Childhood Secret And How He Copes With Stressful Summers As A Parent

Ian-Ziering

(PCM) We recently had a chance to catch up with actor Ian Ziering where he opened up to us about his own childhood secret and how he copes with stressful summers as a parent. Ziering revealed to us that he suffered from the issue of bedwetting as a child and currently his own daughter is suffering from the same ordeal. However, thanks to GoodNites and some clever parenting techniques the issue of bedwetting has truly become a non-issue at all! For more information, please visit GoodNites.com.

Ziering also spoke to us about how he balances both his acting career and life as a parent with two young daughters as well as his upcoming role in Sharknado: The 4th Awakens and looking back on the days of 90210 after all these years.

One of the challenges that Ian and thousands of other parents deal with is bedwetting. Ian is a former bed wetter, so he knows how embarrassing or shameful it can feel, and now his children are experiencing nighttime wetting as well. Bedwetting can be hereditary, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. Experts say bedwetting is not your child’s fault, and there are ways you can help your child through the problem. Ian is working to break the stigma associated with nighttime wetting, and to help parents and their children rest easy tonight.
