Midnight Raider... How to get a 5yr old to stop raiding my cabinets?

Brandi - posted on 04/24/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 5yr old son keeps getting up either in the middle of the night or EARLY in the am and getting into food. I've tried hiding it, tying my cabinets and fridge shut, putting it out of his reach. But nothing seems to stop him. I've even tried putting a snack by his bed so he won't get up, or telling him to wake me up if he's hungry. They seem to work for a little bit but then it's back to his usual habits.... I need help PLEASE

a five ear old can undo knots.....have you tried locking the fridge and cabinets.....it sounds cruel, but about the only thing to keep those closed....also, have you talked to his doctor about a sleep aid for him? keeping him asleep will also stop that....it worked for me
