Find cause first: Nocturnal enuresis in children is fairly common but usually is completely resolved by adulthood. If present since childhood may just be slow to resolve but should respond to prescription meds if due to the usual cause. If it is a new symptom a full workup is warranted. If there is any developmental delay present that changes expectations and it may be lifelong problem.
