  Purpose : the purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of change in parents’ coping strategy in the treatment of enuresis in their children. Method: this experimental study was carried out in schools in the two districts of Tehran in 1999. Subjects were selected based on DSM-IV diagnostic criteria and were then randomly assigned to 3 groups (experimental, drug therapy and combined group). Initial information were gathered by the “health Belifes Pattern”, and behavior dimensions were evaluated in general and specific dimensions. Results: parents’ behaviors with children were significantly different in the three groups, with mean scores of 4.37 in the combined group, 2.83 in the educational group and 3.38 in the drug therapy group. Also there were significant differences between combined group and educational group in parents’ behaviors with their children at their bedtime, but no such difference was seen in the drug therapy group. Parents’ behavior after children’s bed wetting showed significant improvement only in drug therapy group. Conclusion: this study showed that combination of drug therapy and behavior therapy was more effective in the treatment of children’s enuresis.
