Yes it is VERY common some children will wet the bed till they are 12. They will grow out of it when there bladders mature. My friends son was 12 when he stopped wetting the bed and my other friends son is 6 going on 7 and still wets the bed. He wears pull ups to bed still. My oldest was 5 when he stopped and my youngest never did. Each child is different and it ISN'T there fault!!

At age 5 it is pretty common. I think it is around 20% of children still wet the bed occasionally at that age.

My step-son is 12 and still wets the bed. We have tried everything, but they believe it is just that he is lacking the hormone that triggers it. Most kids will outgrow it by the time they hit puberty.

Make sure you see a doctor to rule out any medical cause, and then discuss with them some of your options.
