The Book Thief

In one chapter Liesel is the "Bed-wetter".

What does this symbolize? And also, after the bed-wetting incident, what is Liesel's step father doing every night for his little girl? <----------------------- ------------------------->

Liesel's bedwetting symbolizes her constant terror that she lives with. Often the terror is in her repressed emotional trauma that manifests itself at night. Hans will sing to Liesel at night or even play his accordion.
