My son is almost 8 and is consistently wetting the bed, he doesn't do it everywhere just at mine and his dads house and occasionally at my sisters house, he doesn't have a medical condition, Ive already checked that out. I've woken him up several times during the night and that doesn't work, he stops drinking at seven and goes to bed at nine which i make him go potty first, no matter what i have done to punish him he doesn't care and still continues to do it, now he has started to pee all over my bathroom. I have literally tried everything short of beating him or sending him to boot camp, any one have any ideas on how to handle and stop this problem?



You would be mortified if i told you half of the things he has done. let me remind you there is no medical condition.



Sincerely desprate mother of three

I'm so sorry to put this thought in ur head but i've heard this before. sometimes when children wet the bed in an older age, it is for attention because someone is hurting them. i can't even say the words of what i'm thinking because it is to horrible to even say out loud. you said theres no medical conditions but maybe his doctor needs to check out more things. I'm so sorry again for putting this thought in ur head but i've heard this before. i pray this is not the case for ur child. sorry if this thought upsets u in anyway.

Here's a suggestion maybe he just wets the bed. If he's a sleep when he wet the bed that isn't his fault I can't see how you can be responsible for your action if you were a sleep when you do it.

Now if he peeing all over your bathroom when he a wake maybe till he gets the point that he can't do it go in to the bathroom with him

I thank you very much for your reply his father and I broke up well before he was born, he's only been in his life for six years now, I had him in the pull up all the way until he started pooping in them too. He already washes his own laundry and has been doing so for months now.

After reading your post I am going to assume that you and his bio father are not together. Is it possible that he is just acting out because he is angry with the situation? My only suggestion is to buy him pull ups in his size and make him wear them to bed. Explain to him that until such time as he doesn't wet the bed, he has to wear them. You could also try making him change his sheets in the middle of the night after an episode, this way he is being responsible for his actions.
