try not letting him have any liquids two hours before bed, or if there has been anything in the family like a fight, a death, ask him about any bullies at school if he's getting picked on, or if god forbid this will be hard to do I've had to ask him if anyone touched him where they should not bemake sure he understands that no matter who it is that you love him and you will belive him he's your son and be prepared for answers no matter how much you may not like the answer in any case he need's to know your there for him and there to protecet him.
I agree with both of the other ladies. Another possibility, though not as commonly known, is a newly developed allergy. When everyone else was seasonally sneezing with itchy, watery, eyes, my son was wetting the bed and stuttering badly. He didn't seem to have any allergies until he was about 5, then started having those symptoms every spring and fall for a few years. Now he's 12, and doesn't wet the bed any more, but still stumbles over his words in the spring and fall.
Just another idea. And I might add that regular doctors will treat you like an idiot if you mention stuttering or bedwetting as allergic reactions. Wholistic or Naturalist practioners are more likely to know about allergic reactions besides asthma or hives.

Since this has not been a problem in the past, there could very well be a medical explanation such as a bladder, kidney or urinary tract infection. Or perhaps, the first week of school didn't go so well and she is stressed. This is likely a temporary problem. Just be sure to not make her feel bad. Just lots of love and support.
Something has probably triggered this, though the problem may be medical, so rule that out first. My little brother had a benign growth in his bladder that blocked his urethra when he was upright, but drifted out of the way when he lay down. Once it was discovered and removed, he was fine. Otherwise, try to name any recent changes, large or small, good or bad, that have occurred. Maybe this is a reaction to those changes. Talking about them might help.
