Hi, our 11 year old DS wont sleep in his own bed. on the week nights we tell him its time for bed he goes to our bed and falls asleep his room is right along side of our room. He has a nice room, his own tv his playstation 2, his books etc. He loves his room but cant sleep in there. If me and my DH force him into his own bed he will cry and sing out to us and stay up all night. a few times we made him sleep in his room he kept singing out and crying for about 2 hours then when we finally fell asleep he crept over with us. We have tried letting him fall asleep on the couch and then bringing him to his own bed, but he wakes everytime and runs to our bed. We have tried locking our door on him and its like he has a panic attack outside our door. He is fine during the day plays outside with his friends, even has sleepovers at his friends house sometimes, and when he goes to his grandparents house he sleeps in a bed by himself. but when it gets dark look out he is a different boy. It seems like he is afraid of his own shadow. We have a big home and if olny me or my DH is home he will follow us around the house, He is terrified of being alone. If i go to the clothsline at 10 oclock at night he has to but on his jacket and go to even if hes just about asleep on the couch. If we go to the table to get a lunch before bedtime, he is saying " oh no , you dont need to get a lunch now " and sits at the table falling asleep until we are done. This is beginning to get very stressful. Me and my DH has no privacy and both me and my husband cant get to do things we want to do. We dont fight or argue about it because we love him and want him to feel safe but this has to stop before our relationship suffers anymore. What can i do to break this habit. We also have a 13 year old girl whom he gets along well with.
