I have read several conversations on this sight and seen that this is more common than I thought... Iv found that my son has been wetting the bed for what I think might be a couple of weeks now... Should I confront him about it or let him sort it out himself?? Help please

I would wait and see if it develops i to a regular habbit. I guess eventually you will have to talk about it together. I wet my bed all through my teens and eventually my folks took me to the doctors where I was refered to the continence nurse who supplied me with all kinds of bedwetting aids, such as nappies and bed pads etc. I have wet on and off all my life. I'm sure your son will be just as embarrassed about it as you are. Bedwetting isn't the end of the world.

Don't confront him with it, but perhaps you could get to him a gentle way. Get some diapers, just a small pack, and leave it where he can find it with a card or letter. Let him know that you suspect that he's wetting the bed and that you're not upset with him but concerned. If this is something new, and not a situation of him having stopped for some time and then starting back up, then he probably needs to be checked by a doctor to make sure there isn't a medical problem. It may be something as simple as a urinary tract infection, or stress, or perhaps it could be a little something more. Check out this thread that I did a while back. it may have some helpful stuff for both of you. http://www.topix.com/forum/health/bedwetting/... . Just remember that as well as embarrassment, it might be that he has not said anything because he's afraid, either of what could be wrong, or how his parent(s) might react. I have heard stories, fortunately very few, of parents who have been quite unrealistic and unreasonable. What ever is happening, it is something he can't help unless he is doing it intentionally. Now in that case, the best thing is to let him know how you feel about it but not chastise him, or tell him he can't do it. What ever is happening, he needs know that it will be expected of him to be responsible for it, and cleaning up as necessary. Good job coming here to get advice, I hope we can help.

At 12, he should absolutely be doing this himself. It will do a lot for his self esteem. You might want to take a look at this thread I wrote a while back. There's plenty of stuff there for both kids and their parents. I think you'll find a bit that might help, and also answer some questions. Daniel is definitely at an age where he should be able to, and should be managing this himself. Don't baby him, and a few words of encouragement every once in a while go a long way. Let him know that it's okay if he wants you to help him put the protection that it's okay and that you'll be glad to. What you are doing is giving him another step towards being an adult. Like I said, giving him more responsibility with this is doing a tremendous amount for his self esteem and the sense of NOT being babied. Here's the thread, take a look at it and consider showing it to him as well. As you will see my "disclaimer" there, I am not a professional or am trying to pretend to be one, but I've read much from other forums, most of them gone and gotten feedback from kids.
