Zayne all of a sudden has this INTENSE fear of his room at night. He SCREAMS bloody murder when we put him to bed, saying the monster or ghost is in there. He had a night light but I thought maybe the shadows it created scared him so I took it out, not better. (should I put it back in?) We used to have a bedtime routine of book, prayers, and daddy sings to him then we'd shut the door and Z would play a little before falling asleep. Then, when this started, we had to add "Go away monster" to his bed routine and he was fine. NOW, Jared has to sing Z to sleep...if he's awake when Jared leaves the room he screams. Last night, as soon as Jared left Z's room Z woke up and started screaming again. I ended up rocking him to sleep in the recliner and when he was OUT we laid him back down. At some point in the night though he was in our bed (he's also been coming down to our bed EVERY NIGHT since this started).
Lexi never went through this "monster/ghost/dark" fear so I'm not really sure what to do about it. Any suggestions????
