Help! My 4 1/2 year old son won't sleep at night. He will sleep if he is in our bed or we are in his. He has only slept with us about 5 times total. My husband has always laid with him in his bed when he goes to sleep then leaves the room. He used to just say he wanted us to sleep with him but now he says he is scared. None of my other kids had this problem.
I think it is something more? Why would he wake so often? Allergies? Other? He is tired and grouchy...esp moreso lately. He was a pretty easy kid until about 9 mos ago. Now he shows more aggression and when I try to talk to him he just puts hands on ears and yells. He seems so unsettled. He does have a 9 yr old brother who has oppositional defiance disorder so he doesn't have the best example in front of him. His two sisters are great examples though. They are 16 and 13. I don't know what to do anymore but we are all tired! Thanks for any advice. Jan
