Background : Enuresis is one of the problems faced by parents during the growth and development of preschool children. Children who experience enuresis tend to be shy, aloof, passive and more silent when playing with their friends. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between enuresis and the socio-emotional development of preschool children in PAUD and TK Aisyiyah Jono Village, Bayan District, Purworejo Regency.

Methods: The research design is descriptive correlative with a case control approach. The population is all students in PAUD & TK Aisyiyah Jono Village, which are 88 respondents. The sample is 70 children with 35 respondents with enuresis and 35 respondents without enuresis and the sampling technique is purposive sampling. The research instrument used the STPPA questionnaire and enuresis observation sheet. Data analysis was univariate with frequency distribution and bivariate with Chi Square using SPSS version 16.

Results: The case group consisted of 35 children (50%) with enuresis and the control group consisted of 35 children (35%) without enuresis. In the case group there were 26 children (66.7%) with social-emotional development as expected, while in the control group there were 17 children (85%) with very good social-emotional development. Bivariate analysis showed that there was a significant relationship between enuresis and the socio-emotional development of preschool children in PAUD and TK Aisyiyah, Jono Village, Bayan District, Purworejo Regency (p = 0.001).

Conclusion: Preschool children who do not experience enuresis have very good social-emotional development when compared to children who experience enuresis.
