Q.

6 yr old wetting his bed.

My 6 year old son now and then wets his bed at night - not very often but sometimes 2 to 3 times a month - should there be cause for concern or will it get better as he grows older?

This is a cause for concern at your son's age. If he happened to wet his bed at a friend's house or when on an outing with the school it would be very embarrassing for him. Please ask your paeditriican to see him. There are excelllent treatments available these days.
