This start about 4months ago, he goes in his own bed and goes to sleep as normal around 930pm no problems but he gets up around 1/2am and comes into ours, we've tried everything, from putting him back several times a night, talking to him, bribeing him with more pocket money, he's always got an excuse like chimes outside, he can hear the dog, but his favorite seems to be the mattress is uncomfy ...
The only thing we can think of is the lady down the street had an attempted burgler, where there was a man & woman working together, and of course kids add bits on and he's heard something thats frightened him, not that he's admitted this but it seems to have started around the same time so thats all we can think of, we have asked him if anything frightens him and he swears not.
We have 2 spare rooms so offered to move him but he doesn't want to, so yeah we've tried everything and are now at a loss as to what to do!
Just to add as a toddler he had sleeping problems, he did stop breathing in his sleep on a nightly basis (he doesn't no this, he thinks he had an "snotty" nose & earache) due to a problem with his adenoids, tonsils etc which he had an operation for just before he was 4 and then everything settled down and for 6yrs no problems
Any help as to where we go from here would appreciated x
