Achieving bladder control is important for children and parents, but there is a shortage of knowledge about experiences from parents' points of view. The aim of this study was to describe parents' experiences of how their children achieved dryness. Twenty-two parents of 21 healthy children were interviewed about the process. The transcribed interviews were analyzed using the qualitative content analysis. How children achieve dryness, as reported mainly by their mothers, seems to be influenced by knowing the time had come, implementing new daily routines, the child's willingness, and a desire to be like others.
