Any suggestions on getting my 3 year old to sleep in his own bed all night?

My son responds best to sticker charts. Give him a sticker for every night he stays in bed all night with a promise of a reward when he's filled it up. After 2 weeks I took my son to the dollar store and he has been good ever since. Whenever he starts getting out of hand on anything, we pull out the charts again. This even worked for wetting the bed!!!

He doesn't have any siblings. I think (by sheer accident) He did sleep in his bed all night last night and I made it a big deal when he did get up this morning! So maybe (fingers crossed) he will start to catch on! Thanks for all of your replies!

Does your child have any siblings? We put both of our sons in a bed together. We had several extremely tough nights, but now they are sleeping by themselves! It was well worth the tears, and believe me there wer tears!

everytime he gets up just keep puttin him back, it will be hard with tantrums in the middle of the night but be strong and dont give up or it will be worse in the long run....eventually he will give up gettin up and realise that if he gets up he goes straight back in his own bed anyway so why bother trying...lol
