Your son is now 5 years old and still has a problem with bedwetting. This is called enuresis. It can be an embarrasing problem for a boy of this age. Have you tried a star chart yet? tell your son that he will get a gold star if he does not wet his bed. If he can get 3 stars in a row he will get a small reward. Try this first and keep on trying for at least 1 month. If it does not work then take him to be seen by your GP or paediatrician. There are several very successful ways of treating this problem and at 5 years your son is old enough to start on any of these treatments.
