We had the same problem with our nine year old. What we suggested to the school, is that they give her regular potty breaks that are timed to the minute. Then what we did was add ten minutes to that time once a month, until she had full control of her bladder. My daughter just suddenly woke one morning dry. And since then, she hasn't wet at night. Unfortulately, she still has accidents once in a while. We know that these accidents embarrasse her, so home and school, we remedy the problem as fast as we can. I hope my suggestions help. Might also try a daily reward system if she remains dry most of the day. She might have a tiny bladder. You might need to make the reward tempting enough that she really tries hard. Be consistant on the reward system. I am 56, mother of four, three are grown and then we have our nine year old. I totally understand your frustration.
