Hi there...I can understand your concern. Sometimes kids take long time to develop bladder control. Or sometimes there could be decreased secretion of antidiuretic hormone from the kidneys. These are the main causes of bedwetting in kids. So kindly consult a paediatrician for further evaluation. Some home measures like asking your kid to empty his bladder before going to bed, giving him minimal fluid for dinner, keeping alarms for midnight to wake and empty bladder can be done
