There comes a time when you have to accept you are never going to beat bedwetting. Accepting it and then just getting on with life is the best way forward. I only wish I had done it much earlier than I did.

How my 8-year-old learned to stop bedwetting
I believe use of an alarm once a child begins to feel embarrassed and frustrated with bedwetting is a families best choice. I used the book, 7 Steps to Nightime Dryness to educate myself. Also get the children’s book, Prince Bravery and Grace - Attack of the Wet Knights for your child. This book really helps a child want to try an alarm.
Then research alarms, we used malem. I suggest narrowing the choice to 2 alarms and letting your child make the final choice. Explain to your child that once you invest in an alarm, he/she must agree to use it each night. I even suggest writing a little contract which you both sign. Remember YOU must wake your child when the alarm goes off for at least a week or two - until your child’s brain is conditioned to wake up to the body’s signal. It takes patience but it is definitely worth the time and effort. My child went from wet every night for 8 years to completely dry every night within two months of consistently using an alarm. Get the books first -they are the key to easiest success. Then get an alarm and be calm and consistent.
