Is it normal that my child still wets the bed?

It can be normal for children to wet the bed up until age 14.  The child may feel embarrassed and avoid going to sleep over at a friend’s house.  Children should not feel ashamed as this can be a normal aspect of how they develop.  If there is concern, it may be helpful to see a pediatric urologist who may refer to pelvic PT.  Pelvic PT can help children learn techniques that may decrease the episodes of bed wetting and learn ways to promote overall control of urination.
