There is so much stress related to bedwetting that I cannot imagine someone making it for laziness. Despite I try making bedwetting less disturbing as possible my daughter is still embarassed about it and all that she wants is just stay dry. Does your daughter feel embarrassed? Bedwetting can lower her self esteem, she need your support.

I work at a SN camp but we have traditional kid as well. Every now and then we get a bed wetter. I think it can definitely run in families and it has to do with very deep sleeping and immature bladder. Hang in there, support you child's dignity and the problem will most likely resolve itself. If it does not there are alarms and medication you can try.

Thank you for the responses.
No, she was trained when she was younger, then started again about age 7, but I'm thinking could be hereditary because I was a bedwetter myself til age 8 or 9 and told her. May be do to laziness as well, but she says she doesn't notice that she has to go til she wakes in morning and she's wet.
I am going to talk to her pediatrician and see what he suggests. Thank you, and God Bless.

There are different way to deal bedwetting. You can try bedwetting alarm or desmopressin, but first have a doctor's visit to check for physical problems as juvenile diabetes, bladder weakness or infection.
My daughters struggled with bedwetting, one still do, it's more common than people might think. If it started lately could be there is a physical or psychological reason, if she has never been dry could be just her bladder is still developing. However don't panic, invest in overnight pull-ups and be supportive, let her feel bedwetting happen and she is not the only one.

Has she always wet the bed? has she been examined by her doctor to be sure there is no infection or other medical problem? Some kids struggle with bed wetting at this age for variety of reasons, until you figure out the root cause, try to support her dignity. I doubt it is deliberate and she is probably quite embarrassed.
