He gets up in the middle of the night (he's 6) and climbs the counters, fridge, shelves, and any other high place i hide things, to get snacks he cant have at night (we buy special ones for school, and keep frostings ect. out of reach...we thought). I have put bananas, yogurt, and other healthy snacks where he can reach as his metabolism is high and he is tiny,so eating is a good thing anytime, but he wants the stuff up high. he won't wake me to get a snack for him and i'm affraid he will get hurt! what should i do i feel like i have tried everything. He has been grounded, banned sweets for weeks on end, denied desert, made to wash walls and weed, explained the dangers of climbing down to showing him pics online of kids that got hurt, had things taken away one by one for every offence, we even set up a camera on the kitchen to try to deter him! I can't lock him in his room, but trust me i have thought about it lol..
