  • Did something change in his life? Like did you all move? Family pet die? Sometime change makes this happen.


    One thing I know is, Punishing him will not work. Because i tried everything with my DD. Put pullups on him at night and leave it alone. He will stop when he stops.

  • Pushng him wont help at all he will just keep doing it.. I went to the dollar store and bought a bunch of toys put them in a bin and every night i would ask my son if he had to go potty and he said no and i would say well lets try cause remember you get to choice a toy in the morning if you dont pee in your bed so he tried and sometimes he went other times he didt but every morning that he woke up dry he got to choise a toy i did that for about 1 week or so then it went to everyother day and so forth untill he got the habit of just doing it again now he has not woke up wet in about a year so he gets a prize for helping and staying dry every 30 days but just remember a week is a long time for a kid.
