We have been foster parents for about two years and we currently have a kiddo at 13 yrs. of age (female) which we have encountered for the first time as a bed wetter occasionally. Thank you for this lesson as it is nice to finally have some quiet time were we can sit and take your course on our schedule and learn how to better understand our kids.
