8-15 years

My 12-year-old son has been working to bed since he was nine years old and he’s only a light sleeper. Over two years with dry nights I I have wasted almost $2000 plus for him with the dry nights. If you could kindly donate some 8-15 years old boys drynites that would be appreciated. All the best johnathan

Bedwetting beyond a particular age can cause psychological or emotional distress in children which can interfere with their social and emotional abilities as well as cause anxiety in adults. With respect to financial support, medicare rebates for psychological treatment by registered psychologists was introduced a couple of years ago under the Federal Government's Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative. This scheme was designed to assist and provide more affordable mental health care for individuals living with mental health problems.
