Armin Brott, Pediatrics, answeredIt’s never appropriate or helpful to punish your child for wetting the bed. Younger kids can wear pull-ups at night, but for older bedwetters this can be a source of shame, so it’s better to use a waterproof mattress pad and cover. Some experts suggest having the child help change the sheets each time, but only as a normal part of his or her responsibilities. It should never be viewed or presented as a “you made this mess, now you clean it up” kind of punishment.
