What Can I Do About My Child's Bedwetting?
My 12-year-old son still frequently wets the bed. How can I help him?
Bedwetting, or enuresis, affects many older kids and even teens. Although the chances are good that your son will outgrow the condition, consider talking to your doctor, who can help find possible causes and suggest the best treatment.
Treatment might include behavior modification, the use of a bedwetting alarm, medicine, counseling, and other methods. Most important, knowing that he has the support and understanding of his family can help your son to feel less frustrated or ashamed about wetting the bed.
