Default Re: Nocturnal Enuresis

First of all, has the kid had a good medical workup? There are an assortment of medical problems that can result in enuresis.

I can't speak to the merits of various urine alarms or usual treatment protocols. However, this sounds like a problem where it would be useful to find out what the parents have been doing and to coach them on what to do and not do. Many parents try using shame, humiliation, embarassment, ridicule, etc. in a misguided attempt to motivate the child to stay dry. This may contribute to his reluctance to accept your help.
