Its quite common for kids to respond to stress such as major changes in their life style, by reverting to an earlier developmental stage, such as bedwetting or even soiling themselves. Usually, fortunately, this doesn't last long. But it needs to be taken seriously.
If she is seeing a school counsellor, have you spoken to the counsellor, mentioning this problem, to check in maybe in those sessions she might reveal a bit more concern than she has so far shown to you ?
Don't be alarmed about it, and don't let her be alarmed by it, explaining it that sometimes this sort of thing may happen shen we're stressed or worried about something, and that you're confident she will soon be able to stop the bed-wetting.
Purple's points are important - its excellent to explain things well, as you have done - but it's always valuable to ask the child to explain the sitation back to you, to understand how she has understood it. This is one point where I would disagree with Soul - whatever is happening in their lives, and at whatever age, kids ALWAYS have a viewpoint about it, which is often not what their parents assume.
You have no choice but that they will have their own theories and ideas about the situation - your only choice is whether you try to hear about it and understand it, or whether you choose to try to ignore it and get mystified by it !
