Explain that you'll sit with him while he falls asleep but then you are going to your own bed. Give him a nice teddy or other comfy stuffed animal to keep him company if he wakes up- and explain that if he wakes up he should hug the comfy. Leave at least one and maybe more nightlights on in his room. Leave the door open so that he won't feel isolated in a closed room. If he gets up and comes to your room, walk him back to his bed and explain that this is where he sleeps now. It may take a few days, but if you are consistent it will work. If you give in even once, it will be tougher.
