Reply to Have a 13 yr old son who is still wetting the bed. Looking for any advice to ...

There are many people that wet their bed through their teenage years. Look at Michael Landon A Little House on the Prairie I think he was an adult when he stopped. Anyways if you take him to a doctor have it checked out make sure there's there's no underlying problem that he may have you might want to try counseling just a couple sessions 2 get them used to each other and then see if they'll open up but what seems to work for most of us I think back then was to dress them up and have no diapers and let them know we don't have anymore and I can't go get any more and just changing the engine clean them every time. I did notice when I put my son to bed I would wat up a towel between him and his underwear cuz you know we are out of diapers and I think the main thing was is it felt weird or uncomfortable cuz he was used to having the diapers that it kept him a little above that stage of deep sleep to where he could be startled easier awake to say I've got to go. Does that make sense. They get used to the warm diaper and there's nothing that stops them but when you have a towel in there it'll save you washing sheets and to them there's something bigger there that feels odd so they can wake themselves up. My son didn't care if you went to bed or not wet, never wet the bed again after that.
