I'm not sure what to think here and how to respond to him. We've moved into a new house about 8 months ago. He got his own room and loved it for about 4 months. Then all of a sudden he kept screaming in the middle of the night and would beg to sleep in my bed. After a few weeks of that he started refusing to go back to his room. I asked why and he comes out with "the wrong mommy scares me and I don't want to see her again" I told him to explain more, he says "her face comes out of the closet door", "she says shhh go to sleep", and "she has black curly hair with scary eyes". He now has been sleeping in my room for the last few months and will not go back to his room unless it's during the day and I'm with him. I haven't been able to talk to him about it because I have no idea how to approach this. I've told him it's nothing to be afraid of but he just refuses to go back to his room. I really need some advice. How seriously do I believe him? Do I just start making him stay in his room? Do I need to call someone to "cleanse" the house? Really at a loss here.
