My son is 5 and I cannot get him to sleep at night or last a whole night. He hears noises, is afraid monsters are in his room, is afraid somone is going ot break into our house. We dont show him scary things and to my knowledge no one has ever spoken with him about break in's. I have asked him where being scared of someone coming in our house came from and he didnt have an answer. Everynight he seems to have a new fear and I cant get him to sleep unless I stay in the room till he drifts off then he is in my room 3-4 times a night because he is scared again. I can get him back to sleep in his bed most nights but I dont understand what is waking him up and I feel so bad for him that he is scared of every noise.
