Is it normal that my daughter at age 8 still wets the bed?
It is not uncommon for your 8 year old daughter to still wet the bed. To give some perspective, seventy-two percent of kids outgrow bedwetting by the time they're 11 years old while most kids grow out of it by the age of 15. So your child is not the only one that is dealing with the frustrations of bedwetting at that age. Even so, it is best to check with a doctor to rule out any medical conditions such as a urinary tract infection. The best case scenario is that the wetting is something she will likely outgrow with time and patience.
