My husband and I have created a monster. Not really, but we have allowed our son to sleep in our bed for mere convenience and from our son saying he is scared to sleep in his room. I need help with fixing this. He starts kindergarden in August.
Any helpful hints or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I don't have any! Both of my children still sleep with us. I've read many things, watched Super nanny's approach but we haven't tried anything yet! Good Luck! :o)

Well, My 5yo DS starts his night in his own bed, then crawls in with us sometime in the middle of the night. He is not scared of the dark or anything like that, he just wants to cuddle with us. (He co-slept exclusively for 2 1/2 years.) I love my cuddle time and have no intentions of ending it any time soon. All four of my kids are in my bed at some point during the night at least twice a week. We bought two queen size beds and attached them side by side to accommodate our large family. We got him out of our bed at 2 1/2 by creating a new big boy room for him, and gave him a clear night time routine. Let him sleep with the light on if he is scared of the dark, then turn it off (with a night light, or closet light on) when you go to bed. That is what we do with our DD.
