The book has received many rave reviews. Sweet Caramel from Dunwoody, GA wrote, “Before spending $2500.00 on an agency to help you, read what Nurse Mercer has to say… The book provides immediate help while the agency requires you to mail in your data and wait for them to send you the next step to try. My child was completely dry within two months after 15 years of wetting. Thanks Nurse Mercer!”

Cabmd from Indianapolis, IN wrote, “Very practical and easy to read. It’s easy to implement the suggestions.” And CP from Boston, MA simply wrote “I am just so happy with this and so amazed that it really does work!!!”

7 Steps to Nighttime Dryness was written by me, Renee Mercer, a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with over 25 years of experience dealing with bedwetting and daytime wetting at my private practice in Maryland. The audiobook is narrated by Anne Marie Silvey and normally sells for $14.95.

Punishing Children for Bedwetting Can Make It Worse

Here’s yet another study that proves that punishment is not effective in ending bedwetting. In fact, the children who were punished actually wet the bed more frequently than those who were not punished. They were also more likely to be depressed or have a lower health-related quality of life score.

This Saudi Arabian study included 65 children, age 7-13, who wet their beds and 40 children who did not wet. The bedwetting children were divided into 2 groups: those who were punished and those who were not punished. The children who were punished wet significantly more often than the children who were not punished. The more often punishment occurred; the more likely the children were to be depressed.

We would like to think that parents would never punish their child for something they have no control over. Punishment can come in different forms, physical, emotional or verbal. Do not use any form of punishment for your bedwetting child.


Belittle or name call, such as “you’re just lazy”, “you’re a baby”
Single him out to do sheets and laundry, teach all your children to do their own sheets
Place wet laundry, disposables or charts where friends may see them
Feel that you are a bad parent because your child wets the bed, often there is a genetic component, and a delay in the development of the brain/bladder connection


Handle wetting discreetly in front of siblings or family members
Keep room clean and odor free, changing sheets as often as needed
Protect mattress with a waterproof cover
Be supportive when travelling, using back up disposables and waterproof bedding or pads
Remind your child that you know he’s not wetting on purpose
Use a bedwetting alarm to help him/her learn how to wake up when wetting is occurring
