My son is almost 11 and won't sleep alone. He's afraid something bad will happen. We don't watch scary movies, we let him lock the doors and set the alarm when his father works nights, we have a smoke alarms in the house because he's afraid of fires. We've tried reading to him and Benadryl to help make him drowsy. He eventually ends up in our room or his sister's-sleeping on the floor. Most of the time, we don't know he's there until we wake up. When we do find him in our room during the night, we take him back to his room but he shakes so bad that I feel terrible to do it to him. His fears aren't totally unreasonable but for every fear he has, we try to do something to counteract it. He separates easily for school and can be left unsupervised for short periods to run to the store during the day- it's just the nights. How do we get control of this?
