Hi there - welcome. Just a thought, Emma - if that's your real name you might want to change it to preserve your anonymity!!

My 9 year old boy is have serve sleep I g problems that he wants either me or the hubby to be one up one down when he goes to bed.. Then sometimes as little as a hour after he has gone to sleep he is up shaking and sweating really bad say I g he can hear noises he then.refuses to sleep back in this bedroom, we have allowed him for the last 3-4 no this sleep on an airbed in our room, but now our 3 year old wants to do this too,
We have tried the talking and supportive route with no success, we have tried the grounding route has no effect, even room his pride and joy away football no effect at..
Last night i slept on the landing right outside his bedroom door.. He stayed in bed and slept only because he knew i was there..
Any suggestions would be really helpful thank u in advance

EmmaWatson16 Mon 29-Aug-16 21:22:11

Why would I need to do that?

Carriadd Mon 29-Aug-16 21:26:09

Well, if its your real name Emma then you wont want your posts or threads to be traceable by the "real" world. Newspapers tend to watch Mumsnets and print threads and names they find interesting.

Welcome to Mumsnet, by the way !!! smile

Optimist1 Mon 29-Aug-16 21:32:01

Exactly, Carriadd - and especially so if you want to discuss something very personal (and things can get very personal on here sometimes)!

MrsChatterbox16 Mon 29-Aug-16 21:43:32

Thank you! I have changed it, it's not my name in any case but I don't have anything to hide in any case.
