    6 year old with fear of sleeping by himself

    Ok, not sure how or when this started but my 6 year old son has recently started to get scared of sleeping alone. His brother and him have shared a room for last 4 years with no issues. But now when my oldest goes to his dad's house my youngest doesn't want to sleep alone. I haven't had this experience before so not sure how else to deal with it. I have read some online info. Sometimes he says there is monsters, then next night its because he thinks he might get sick and be by himself (got sick in bed a few months ago but brother was still there) to something another night. Any hints from other moms who have dealt with similar would be great.

    I have a 5yo who doesnt like to sleep alone either.
    We have been known to make a bed for him on the floor beside our bed and he sleeps very well that way.
    Try making him a bed on the floor in your room and I bet he will sleep just fine till his brother returns home.
    I promise it will make things much more secure for him and give everyone a goods nights rest.
