Well my stepson has just recently got his own bedroom and before that he has always slept with his father. He's been in his own room for about 2-3 months and we havent had any problems, but for a week now he has got out of the bed every night saying that he's scared and wants to sleep in the room with us. The first night I can understand, but now I don't know what to do because I don't want him sleeping in there and my husband gets mad at me? I don't have kids of my own, what should i do?Answer Question

I think he is at an age that he can fully understand the importance of sleeping in his own room, explain to him there isn't anything to be scared of, maybe give him a special toy to cuddle, a night-light... It's hard b/c he is at an age that most kids would not have any problems. I would just tell him he is too old to sleep in bed with you guys, be honest with him but still help him transition. Some how make the idea of sleeping in his own room fun, another idea is to let him decorate it so it feels like it's his. I have younger children so it's hard to say, I hope it helps a bit though! Good luck!
