  • moving him/leaving after he is asleep is a mean trick. be firm. tell him he's going to go to sleep by himself tonight. When he gets up, walk him back to his bed and tuck him back in. do not get in bed with him! My sister did the same as you... laying in bed with them until they were asleep. Now, at 6 and 7 years old, her boys STILL wont go to sleep without someone in the room. my sister cannot hire a babysitter for an evening out b/c she cant have a sitter lay in bed with her boys for them to go to sleep!

    nip it in the bud now mama.

    I agree with this. Also be consistant. Put him in his bed. If he gets up, put him back in and again and again. He needs to learn to go to bed on his own and self sooth.
