  • The bedwetting you just have to wait out. Invest in a big case of Goodnights and send him to bed in those until he stops wetting during the night..
    For the daytime, tell him you are going to put him on a schedule until he can go on his own when he first feels it. For one week have him go to the bathroom every hour (10, 11, 12, etc.) After a week start gradually backing off of the schedule and turning the responsibility over to him.

  • Tell him its not healthy to hold his pee in til the very last minute and tell him why, infections etc.... As soon as he feels he has to go, then he should just go. or ask him if he would rather be treated like a baby and eveytime he goes in the potty you'll make a chart and give him a gold star and at the end of the week if he did a full week he gets a stickers. and see what he saids.and as for the bed-wetting, try nothing to drink an hour before bed, And you have to make sure your there watching him or close by hearing him go in the bathroom before bed,
