Bedwetting is a common problem that some kids deal with until they're teenagers, and research finds that the behavior has a strong genetic link.
"There is a very clear component of family history with bedwetters," said Dr. Charles Kwon, a pediatric nephrologist. "So, if one or both of the parents wet the bed into preadolescence or adolescence, the risk for this happening to their child is quite high."
There is no clear-cut reason as to why some kids wet the bed. One theory is the brain does not get the signal from the bladder that it needs to be emptied. Another theory says the child simply does not wake up when it's time to go.
One of the most effective ways to train your child to "get up and go" is to use a moisture alarm. It goes off every time a bed liner or undergarment gets wet.
