Metaphorical and Social Stories
Metaphorical stories can be used as a way of introducing learning and guidance to change unwanted behaviours. The metaphors in these stories give children a different way of looking at their problem with wetting or soiling, in a way that they should be able to understand. They can be used to help children express how they feel about the problem and what they think could help.
