Since we moved to our new home my 6 year old will not fall asleep in his bed. He has to be in my bed. He says he scared to sleep in his bed. After he falls asleep I have to carry him to his room.

Thanks I feel like calling nanny 911! He acts so scared it breaks my heart. If he lays with me 10 min. hes gone. He has a loft bed so its hard to lay with him. I'll try to get him down tonught and see how far I get.

Please stop now! You're making things worse for him (and you!) Go back to the days of him being a baby and make sure he is happy with his surroundings. Ensure he reads for a while in bed (if he can be relaxed, he'll feel happier about letting sleep take over) while you keep busy upstairs, cleaning the bath or putting ironing away (he then knows you're there but you're not having to "nurse" him to sleep) - I know how you feel - my 8 year old went through a similar phase - Maria x
