Anyone have any ideas on how to keep my 2 year old in his bed/room early in the morning?

he gets up every morning around 530 Am and comes to our bed. We've tried putting up a baby gate but that hasn't worked...

At this age it is difficult to get them to understand that they need to stay in their bed until you come and get him, try using a music alarm or get an electronic timer that you can use to turn on a light in his room at a certain time. When that light comes on he can come into your room. He should be old enough to understand that. You will need to take him back to his room each time he gets out of bed and tell him to wait for the light to come on and it will take a while because of his age (they usually understand the stay in bed concept around 2 and 1/2 to 3 years of age). But I think that he should be able to do it in a week or 2. Just be consistent. Use the gate at the same time,
