i agree with some of the ladies, my god son had slept in his mum's bed for ages, and then she wanted to stop it, so i went to hers and everytime he got out of bed i went back and put him in his bed and everytime i left it a bit longer, before i went in. i did it cos i was slightly detached from the situation and his mum prob wouldve given in as she was suffereing pnd! he did everything from throwing things around the room, smashing his bottle etc but that was the first night he slept in his bed! and has been good ever since

Routine - have one and stick to it and everytime he get's up put him back to bed and do it everytime they will get it can take some time but stick to it and it will work and everytime he stay's in his bed all night praise him with his chioce of breakfast or do something together that he enjoys

I agree. If he makes it thru/over the gate, say nothing but pick him up and set him back in bed. He's looking for your attention...good or bad. So by you ignoring him, he's not getting the response that he wants and will stop. Also, LOTS of praise on the mornings he stayed in bed.

I had the same problem with my 4yr old, my partner sat on a chair outside her room and every time she steped out she would get in trouble, he pretty much stayed up all nite and keep sending her back to bed. It took us about a week to stop her from getting in our bed finally after 3 yrs. let no how you go:)
