Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Circumcision is a procedure that involves removing the tissue covering the head of a boy’s penis, called the foreskin.
In this procedure, a piece of the bowel, stomach or ureter (the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder) is used to enlarge the bladder.
Enuresis is a condition in children over the age of 4 in which they continue to wet their bed or release urine at other inappropriate times.
A ureterocele is a condition where the portion of the ureter closest to the bladder becomes enlarged because the ureter opening is very tiny and obstructs urine outflow.
In industrialized countries, urinary stones — urolithiasis — are rare in children. When present, they are often associated with specific metabolic disorders or anatomic abnormalities.
Urinary Tract Infections
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is caused by bacteria that get into the bladder. UTIs are very common in children, particularly in little girls, and tend to keep coming back.
