My 7 year old has been wetting the bed sporadically after a few years of being trained with no incident. We have asked him what he thought about it and he actually said it was seeing a scary movie, it was only Ghostbusters but to a 7 year old it can be kinda scary. We have noticed that not only scary movies, but when he gets too hot during the night, and of course forgetting to go to the bathroom before bed are factors leading to his bed wetting. Hope this helps, I know it's annoying, just remember, they really don't like doing it, and I've had to talk to my husband about mentioning it in front of him to others, it's embarrasing.

Honestly there is no way to stop it. It is quite normal for a lot of kids to bed wet till they hit puberty. Just know it is not her fault do not blame her and buy some pull ups till her body matures enough to stop the bedwetting.

How old is she? bed wetting is pretty common, and how you should deal with it really depends on how old she is, how often it is happening, etc. We really need more information to be able to help you.
