Hi everyone - I have a seven year old son who has become afraid to sleep in his own room or be in a room by himself for the past month. The first week when he came into our room I would move over and let him into our bed because it only happened a few nights. However, the second week it happened every night and my husband and I would send him back into his bed but he wouldn't stay there long. He would come back into our room shaking and his eyes would be filled with fright. Week three and four we made a bed for him in our room and allowed him to sleep in there. He can't sleep in our room forever but I'm not sure how to get him to feel safe in his room again. If anyone has any suggestions or advice please share, we would greatly appreciate it.
