My almost 3-year-old son has been getting out of bed every night for the past 2 weeks. We think he gets scared. With a newborn, it’s a bit hard.
So we asked some friends for advice.
We noticed slight differences between what our female friends told us versus what our male friends told us.
Samples of advice are below. Can you pick which group of advice is from female friends and which is from our male friends?
Group 1’s advice:
1. Your son just needs reassurance that he is safe and that you love him! This happened to us too, you will get through it.
2. Silently walk him back to bed, sit with him a while, and things should be back to normal soon. We’re totally here for you if you need help!
3. Give him a toy if he can get through the night without getting out of bed! Can I bring you food during the day or anything to help?
Group 2’s advice:
1. Just lock the door.
2. Buy earplugs.
3. Stay in a hotel.
