Usually children who are above 5 years of age tend to have control over urination. If older children (above 5 years) wet their bed or wet themselves in places other than the bathroom, they might be suffering from enuresis. The instances must last for quite a few months before this is considered a problem. One or two incidences may occur even in normal children. For a diagnosis of this problem it is necessary that organic causes are ruled out. This is often a source of anxiety and embarrassment for children.
