Can bedwetting be prevented?

Bedwetting happens normally to some children and is not under their control so it cannot be prevented. Scolding or shaming a child will also not help prevent or treat the behavior. Waking the child at night to go to the toilet will prevent some wet nights, but does not teach the child to wake up by themselves when their bladder is full.
