My 4.5 year DTS sleep with the light on because they don't like the dark. He probably says he wants to be tucked in because he is scared so leaving the light on might help?

We put a little pot of smarties in DD's room when we were having similar issues. We'd show them to her at bedtime, tell her she can eat them all in the morning (there'd only be around 4 in there), but if we had to come in during the night we'd eat once each time. Then put them out of reach! It worked a treat grin
