Today’s Featured Question
Dear Little Stepmom,
My stepson is 5 years old and has been living with his biological mom for most of the past year (she refused to follow the court orders). His Dad has been fighting for custody or more time (enforcement of the orders) but, during the court battle his mom has kept him away from us. We finally have a set schedule and get to have him half the time. We are so happy to have him back in our life. It’s been painful to have him away.
The problem is since he moved back in with us he has started wetting the bed at night. He had not been wetting the bed before his mom took him from us. His mom says he wasn’t wetting the bed at her house and she says he isn’t wetting the bed at her house now either. I have a hard time believing her because my stepson says he’s been having accidents at her house too.
It’s been about 5 weeks now and he has accidents once or twice a week here. Do you have any suggestions on how we can help him or why he’s started having problems? I know it hasn’t been that long but we do not want to let the problem get out of hand by ignoring it.
