Q.

Bed wetting ??

I am a single mom with a 7 yr old son who gets distressed as he seems to still wet his bed - I say seems because only his pyjamas are wet - do children this young ejaculate ? Is this normal ?

Your son is wetting himself although it seems like only a little urine is being passed when he sleeps. This is not due to ejaculation at his age. Bedwetting is very distressing for children of this age.It is called enuresis.Enuresis is readily treated. Please speak to your doctor who must first make sure that your son does not have any problem with a urinary tract infection.
