If you are asking about nocturnal enuresis, bedwetting alarms "cure" about 3 out of 4 users.
Go to http://www.Healthychildren.Org and search on "bedwetting". The first item [waking up dry: helping your child overcome bedwetting] is an excellent review. If you are asking about daytime enuresis, that is a more complex issue that should be taken up with the pediatrician or family doctor.
