Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

How do I get my 2 year old son to sleep and stay in his big boy bed?

He thinks there are scary monsters in his room and always wants to come and sleep with mommy because he's scared! I have "gotten" the monsters out, but he still says they are there!

I haven't had this problem specifically, but my MILs advice if it did happen was to give my children a spray bottle with glitter water in it and they could spray the monsters with the "monster repellant".In a similiar situation, my 4yo is currently using monsters as a way to sleep in our bed (I know she isn't really afraid). I make her get back in her own bed and now she doesn't use that excuse, but another one :)Good luck!

Maybe try sleeping with him in his bed until he falls back asleep. I do this with my 2 year old when he wakes and he ends up sleeping the rest of the night.
