I have tried the monster spray, nightlight and nothing helps! If i put him in his bed after he falls asleep then most of the time he wakes up and comes in my bed. If i put him in his bed before he falls asleep then he wont do it. He talks about monsters and ghosts and says thats why he cant sleep in his bed. I know i need to be consistent with it, but i need to know the right way to go about it and not get aggravated or upset in front of him. Thanks mothers!

Children are very smart and they learn how to work parents at a very early age. Use the big boy tactics on him . I once had trouble with my 3 year old daughter acting out. I sat her down on my lap and explained the power of a lead pencil to her. I first drew a line on a piece of paper then I showed her the eraser and said watch this, and erased the line. I then told her if she didn't behave I would erase her. That lasted almost a year. Good luck T M E
