He is almost 14 nothing has worked!! Alarm, me waking him up in the middle of the night. I limit water. He has seen pediatric urologist and they tell me that he will soon grow out of it and that waking him in the middle of the night is not helping learn how to wake himself up. The doctor didn't do any exam on him or tests. He will be going into the 8th grade and he wants to go on the Washington DC trip but he is embarrassed.

My 16 year old son wet the bed until he was almost 15, what worked for him was we let him drink as much as he wanted during the day, after 3;30 he doesn't drink at all but 1 glass of milk with dinner. At around midnight I wake him and make him pee.

That is certainly a challenging issue to address. I do remember my brother having problems with that around your son's age, but he did grow out of it. And that's great you've already got a Dr's opinion. However, if you feel he wasn't thorough enough, don't hesitate to get a 2nd opinion. Sometimes there can be medical factors that need to be addressed. In fact, if you want to look through this article at, it gave some of the causes for bed-wetting and how to respond. Just FYI!
