I have a six year old nephew that pees his pants at school at home everywhere. He doesn't seem to care and when u ask him if he peed his pants he lies. I feel sorry for. My sister. He lies about it and if u don't notice that he has peed his pants he will sit in it till u notice it and then he is scolled. From sitting in the wet pants

My daughter started having many wetting accidents and the school nurse suggested she might have an urinary tact infection. She did!

i find that the most time that she has her accidents is when she is outside playing with her friends. I have been goin out and maken her come in and got potty every 20 mins. SHe does not have nite accidents in bed just threw the day if she is outside. She tells me that is was an accident and that she didnt mean to but when she is doin it 4-5 times a day then it is no longer asn accident. she was a preemie so we are taken her to the doctorto see if there might be something wrong wir\th her bladder. thank you all

You maybe need to get her checked by the doctor as she may have an infection (will be smelly and she may complain it stings) could also be if she's upset by anything, at school or at home. wouldn't recommend pull ups as she may think its ok to wee then, as I presume she's been dry already which would rule out any physical reason for wetting...your child's school nurse is a good resource for ideas if you can't get it sorted!!!!

I made my son wash his pants by hand, But he was doing it when he was in a bad mood with me. I felt realy bad when I did it, But my mother n grandmother said it was the only way. I tried evrything else, inothing else worked. He never did it again.

My youngest would wet her pants and still has these accidents. Sometimes it's just that they are having too much fun and don't want to miss out by leaving to use the restroom. But I have noticed in my own children when something traumatic has happened in their life sometimes they go "backwards" and revert to babylike tendencies. Some children do it for attention. Sitting down and discussing this in a calm fashion in private, she can know that you are concerned for her and that you truly want to help her stay dry.

my daughter lily is 5 and she wets the bed every night. This week has been the best week so far she has had a dry bed for the past 4 nights. We ran out of pull ups so we decided to try one more time...if you know what i mean..we have tried this 50 times:( to take her off the pull ups..I was beginning to feel like a failure as a mom until one magical day I had a sit down one to one with my mother-in law. I explained how lily wets the bed even if I make her go potty prior to going to bed. It's funny my mother-inlaw was very quiet for a while then decided to spill the beans. She told me my husband did the same thing until the age of 7..OMG..I wish he would have told me this important info since he saw me struggling with this. I also found out that my husband's brother had the same problem until he was 13 years old. she told me they just grew out of it...Ok well I see the light at the end of the tunnel now. Even though it is a problem I still feel a sense of comfort knowing that lily is ok and we will need to work through this together. I feel horrible knowing that i yelled even spanked my daughter because of her bed wetting and all the while the answers where there all i had to do is ask. I'm very disappointed in myself for reacting that way with my daughter...i hope she can forgive me. My message to all the moms that are in this situation with children that wet beds..please talk about this with your parents and in laws and find out as much as you can before you disappoint yourself and your child with your actions.
FYI , I did the doctor thing too and no response. Please if there is anyone out there that has found anything that works please let me know.....
my routine for the past 4 nights have been.
1. no liquids past 7pm
2. potty before bed at 8:30
3. I wake her up at 12 am to potty
4. I wake her up at 4am to potty
5. I wake her up at 7am to potty and start her day.
After all this I'm exhausted, but lily feels like a rock star because she didn't' wet the bed:) good luck to all.....

have you gone through some sort of drama or big life change recently, death...move...divorce...marriage...etc.? I think this will take some patience and big girl talks. Maybe she is just trying to reach out to mom and thinks this is the best way to get your attention? good luck!! (pull ups are wonderful! she can change her own!)
