My nine yr old and my four year old are scared of the dark. They are both boys . i have done it all as far as the glow in the dark stars, the night light a lamp in their room. They both have thier own room up staris. They have new beds and everything. Still wont sleep in thier rooms. What can I do to help them stay in their beds? I am open to any ideas you might have. I want them in their rooms this week. They sleeps in our living room.

Might it have something to do with the way the room is decorated (i.e. posters that could make them nervous with the light off)?

Something else you could try is having them get used to sleeping with a lamp on (not a night light, but a regular, run-of-the-mill lamp) that will make it dim but not dark.

Do you know if this has something to do with the type of movies they watch? Just a thought...

I hope you get it taken care of! Let me know if it works out!
