In brief: Caffiene and sugar

Almost all incontinence in teens will be related to urgency and irritation to the bladder by these substances.

In brief: Multiple causes

Sometimes hereditary overactive bladder. Extreme physical stress in some athletes esp if high impact sports such as track, gymnastics & basketball. Pelvic muscle dysfunction, can be weak or dysfunctional hypertonic (spastic) muscles leading to loss of bladder control.
