This really helped us

The person on the bedwetting store chat suggested this book. My son is very motivated to be dry and listened to every word. He also took the book to bed and reread it on his own. He has been dry every night for almost two weeks. Major improvement!

Fun book with compelling advice

This book is definitely for the more mature child who wants to understand what is going on in their body and who can comprehend that there are steps to try in order to solve bedwetting. It does a great job of not making the child feel bad about bedwetting. I love the concept of the kid detective in this book-it goes along with what so many children are exposed to in their day-to-day television, book and movie media. The last few pages contain some ""games"" for children as well as some helpful guidance for parents. Overall it is an entertaining book that is direct about its message of solving a complicated and sometimes embarrassing situation.
