  • Be firm and consistent!! Let you child know you are sticking to your ground and don't give up...once he realizes you aren't going to give in he will be more likely to stay in his bed!!

  • Mom, instead of fighting this go with the flow. He will not be a pre teen and still sleeping in your bed, enjoy this cuddling time for which have very little time of it left. Everything will eventually fall into place, just keep harping that big boys sleep in their own beds.....

  • Stay in his room and put him back in bed with no talking for a couple nights. He will get the idea. Watch THE NANNY this is her technique. It takes persistence but it works.

  • We put a gate up at our daughters door to keep her in her room. She would wake up and wander the house and get food and whatever else she thought nessesary. When she started climbing that gate, we put another gate up lol.

  • Make sure he knows the rules! Children must sleep in their own beds and then stay consistent. Of course it will take a few nights of putting him back in his own bed, but he will get it.
