So....Zachery sometimes has issues with fear at night. I remember when I was his age I did to. I cant remember what I did to get over it, but somehow I did. Last night it happened again. It always does when he is not sleeping in the room with his brother, who is away on a field trip. We give him hugs and kisses, tell him we love him, tuck him in, read a story, pray with him, rub his back, everything you can think of to make him feel safe and secure. It does not work. When he comes is scared of the different sounds we tell him exactly what the sounds are. So after a couple times of him coming into our room last night, I finally told him at 4am to go watch cartoons in the living room. When I got up this morning, this is what we found. He is zonked out on the couch with the TV on. So here is my question: Have you had to deal with this with your kids and if you did what did you do? Thanks for the advise.
