My daughterhas been peeing Her bed for the longest time I could remember . I don't want to put my daughter on drugs. They told me to get the alarm but that was not working for me. So I thought of my own ideaI put her in diapers overnight.because that was when she was a baby so I thought it would work now.

JUST in the past day you were able to get her in to see a psychiatrist AND get a diagnosis... ? Amazingly fast medical services you have there.

IF this is true, your daughter needs immediate help. While some adolescents do have a problem with bed-wetting at night, to have accidents during the day is virtually unheard of! Unless she has some sort of neurological problem and cannot control her bowel or bladder function, she needs to see a psychiatrist.

Either you are a major, pathetic troll (perhaps the same one that deleted her account just the other day) or your daughter needs serious professional help. I'm done w/ you.

Let her be. As long as the mattress is protected and she's in charge of the wet laundry... just love and support her.

Let her pick them out. They make undergarments for older kids that are very discreet and will help her maintain her dignity until you figure this issue out.

I would not 'put a 12 year old in diapers', but I WOULD ask her if she would be more comfortable having the larger pull ups available until her her bladder has matured. Technically, If she was wetting the bed regularly I wouldn't have taken her out of them in the first place... unless she really wanted to try going w/out them.

I would also make sure she is responsible for taking care of the wet laundry.

I have heard there is some success w/ the drugs though and it's not a permanent thing. The alarm wasn't working for YOU? Or it wasn't working for HER?

You should be working w/ her and trying to find what works best for her body as I can't imagine wetting the bed at 12 is any fun. Granted, there may be nothing that DOES work yet at this point and it's totally not her fault, but it sounds like you are just giving up.
