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 can I get my 7 year old to stay in his bed all night?

0 answers
My 7 year old son will not sleep all night in his bed. Every night I walk him back to his room when he comes looking for me. I have also tried a sticker/reward chart, sleeping on his bedroom floor so he knows I am close, but not actually with him in his bed. Nothing is working! He's even crawled in bed with friends' parents at sleepovers! He slept with us for quite a while when he was a baby/toddler so I know I've created this problem. He needs to get used to sleeping alone and I just want a full nights sleep for all of us!
