A youngster who has been previously toilet trained but reverts to bedwetting may be feeling insecure in some way at school. This sort of behaviour indicates that your child feels out of their depth and needs greater attention at home, just like when they were a baby or toddler.

Firstly, take a sympathetic approach: your child isn't doing this on purpose. Talk to your child about what's worrying them - sometimes role play can help, where you take their part, saying 'I feel worried because...' and your child fills in the blanks. If you can't get anything out of your child, talk to their teachers and their friends' parents to see if they can shed any light on things.

Give your child lots of extra cuddles and attention until they feel happier and more secure; then you can ease them back into toilet training again.
