8 year old bed wetting

Please help, my 8 year old first bor son wets bed every day. I wake him up 4 times a night but some how he wets the bed.
He does not take liquids after 4 in the evening but that does not help either.

He has been having this problem eversince and i though he would out grow the probelm but it seem to be getting worse. This is also affecting his self esteem as he would not go to visit his granny or aunts. He is not happy about this as well

please assist

I am not surprised that your son's bedwetting is affecting his self esteem.Bedwetting is known as 'enuresis'. There are effective treatments available for enuresis. Your son must be seen by a paediatrician as soon as possible as this problem causes lots of embarassment for your son especially at his age.
