My step-son has done very well since Aug. when we made him & his sister sleep in their own room (before we moved they shared a room). We had to get firm with him, but he did well. Then when his mom moved into a new house, he started having nightmares at her house. The week he started having nightmares at her house, he would still be scared when he came home. So, we had to reassure him that he was safe, that i heard just about everything that happened in the house, etc. We told him that spiderman came alive off his blanket and protected him. This and our vigilance keeping him in his own bed helped him get back to normal. However, he is starting to sneak into his sister's room again. There was a wind storm a week ago that shook his window really badly. I have been trying to get him comfortable again. He is 4 almost 5, but I am not sure what else to do to help him sleep better at home and at his mothers...

Maybe a dream catcher. I told my son that it caught all his bad dreams before they enter his dream. We would go out every morning and shake the dream-catcher to send the bad dreams away. I also told him that his dreams are magic and that if a bad dream did escape than he could bring mommy in to his dreams and kick the bad guys butt. I also told him that he has magic powers in dreamland and can do anything.... fly, turn in to Hulk .... Hope this helps. Oh yeah I also got him a nightlight and that helped. Good luck!
