it is best to take her to the doctor it may be medical, i try not to sound harsh but unless they are incontinent then they shouldn't have accidents. Take her to the dr and explain what has been happening

this is good advice, Kate! I hope your daughter is ok though, I know how challenging accidents can be at that age

from the last part of you and your husband splitting up could have taken a major psychological blow to your daughter so in addition of taking her to the MD Specialist I would take her to a psychiatrist and get her through some good psychological therapy. And in addition to that to help manage this problem in the mean time I think it would be best that you place her in diapers. Don't treat her like a baby or do anything to degrade her or to disrespect her in any way or form. At this point of time I am sensing a great deal of fragility from her and the stress of this problem and the emotional hurt from that psychological blow is hard enough. And to treat her like a baby, belittling, degrading and such can be a HUGE Breaking point. If you wind up having to change her be respectful to her and and give her the assurance morale support and emotional support that she needs. I am rooting for you and hope the very best for you and her. Hope that you and your husband will start sorting things out with each other and hopefully divorce will not be the answer.(Much worse than death) And I wish that you and him can pick up the broken pieces and start again and live a continued long happy life with each other as well. I know that my parents separated when I was at a early stage of my life and it was not at all any kind of bed of roses for me just like it is not at all any kind of a bed of roses for any of you.

All the best of wishes to you guys.

When my dad died I was 7 and started to wet my bed again. I was 9 before I started to have any dry nights again but was dry by 10.
these are big things in any one life to happen, more so for a child.

I'm 14, and i've been having accidents too like this 15 year old girl. My dad said he'll put me in diapers if I don't stop pising my pants like a baby. What should I do?

If he ends up doing that remember that there is nothing to be ashamed of. I wear diapers and am glad that I have the protection. It is a lot better than waking up in a cold soggy bed. I hope his intentions are to help you rather than shame you. But no matter just remember that you are not alone. There are a lot of teens who share your problem, me included. Best of luck.

Hi Kayla, Ashley gave you very good advice and I can tell you that you are not the only one, we all have a prob like you on here, if not, why would we be here!
I'm 20 and a male, but still wet the bed, you said that you wet, my word not your's, your pants, do you meant that litrulally or do you mean you wet the bed as the two are difrent.
If you do wet during the day then I would surjest that a trip to the Dr's is the best thing to do before thinking about going back to wearing a nappy as there might just be a little prob that will need sorting out.
Hope you didn't mind me jumping in Ashely but I just thought that it wasn't very clear on her post.
Hope this helps, bye, Dean.

How nice it is to see real genuine people talking about what this site was created for and not silly people posting cr*p about being a baby and people like CAT shouting abuse at people seeking real help, hope it stay's clear of such people.

Hi Kayla I won't say anything on nappies cos you have already recieved great advice, but your dad should not treat you like that to shame you wearing nappies is for protection and can save alot of hassle but it, a trip to the dr can be good do not be embarassed as the dr has seen many patients like that. If your dad forces you in nappies against your will it is emotional abuse and can be very harmfull to yourself your confidence and self esteem. Talk to the Dr say what he has told you, it may be an empty threat but he should be a bit more understanding.

I think your split from your husband is most likely the roor cause of this. She is either doing it subconciously to rebel against it or it has affected her emotionally and caused her to regress. I think a trip to the doctors is a must. It is far from normal for a 15 year old to wet or mess themselves. I had to see the doctor at 15 for my constant bedwetting. They are very matter of fact about it and usually refer you to the continence nurse and a specialist. I'm sure she will get through this stage in time but why go through it without help.
