My son is 7 and him and I have never slept through the night. He won't sleep or stay in his bed without someone (me) being in the bed with him. He will not even tolerate me in the room next to him. He needs me in the bed next to him. I have tried tough love which only leads to nobody in the house sleeping at all and screaming and yelling all night long with no sleep at all. It is killing my marriage because I have not been able to sleep in my bed for 7 years. Everyone said I was babying him, or that he will grow out of it. It is severe and I need help. How can I get help for the sleeping/fear of being alone issues. I don't have much faith in OT since we spent an entire year in OT for his severe food sensitivities and it never improved. Help me and my marriage and my poor son who is scared to death to be alone at night.
