how do tweens handle it?
Approximately 1-2 percent of teenagers still wet the bed at least part of the time and most of these will still stop naturally. Start by insuring that there is no underlying medical condition causing your child’s bedwetting. Look at any food or drink, such as caffeine drinks and citrus fruits, that may irritate the bladder and eliminate them if you can. Keeping a food journal may give your child an idea of what may be factoring in their bedwetting. Finally, look at ways to empower and support your child to let them take more responsibility in managing their bedwetting. The article "But I'm Too Old to Wet the Bed..." Support and Hope for Teens With Nocturnal Enuresis”, by Amy Carey can give you and your tween information that can help with bedwetting.
