  • Did it just start? It can be a sign that something happened to him. If he has always done it, then he will outgrow it. My son was 14 when he finally stopped.

  • Is he wetting it or is it "Wet Dreams"?

  • he should have a check up and ask about meds he can take for it if he is not sick. There are medications that can help. One is given by a nasal spray.

  • He could be having 'nocturnal emissions'...wet DO know what that is,don't you? I hope.
    Otherwise if he is really wetting the bed, he needs serious help----he has been traumatized in some way and he needs to tell you why and who did it. Teens don't wet their beds ...unless there was something done to them. See a Doctor.
    A psychiatrist...counseling....something. This is not normal.

  • I had an issue as a teen, it started suddenly and I had a seizure. You should take him to a pediatrician as soon as possible if this isn't something he's done since childhood.
