Yeah he can see. Very well actually. DH and I both started wearing glasses when we were older kids/ preteens. He can see things very far away and I don't think the room is too dark. We have curtains on his windows but I don't think its to dark

I'm mobile.... sorry for the typos!

I like this idea also because I think it reinforces that DD is being "good" (as in quiet, not yelling/screaming etc) so she gets the reward of being taken out of the room. When he models the same behavior - controlling himself, not screaming or saying mean things, then he will get the same reward.

I absolutely sympathize with you, DS2 who has ALWAYS been my cuddlebug, started preferring DH to read him his bedtime story about a month ago. It truly broke my heart but I know, at least with our two, these phases come and go.

Re: Anyone else have a kid like this?

Oh it just sounded similar to what my guy went through. Dh or I didn't wear corrective lenses until we were pre - teens age either. So we had no clue what was going on with our guy until later. We also always take them dr. for all the well child check ups... but we found out when he was a little older( his eye one morning started to cross so I took right in to our ophthalmologist). So now they all get checked out yearly by him, he appeared to see fine would point out birds flying and what not so we had no clue other than the refusal to get up with out a parent. Just trying to think of what it could be thats all good luck I hope you get it figured out.

I too would go in and take ur dd out and tell him when he calms down you'll get him too. I'd think when he realizes he isn't coming out of his room screaming like that it will stop quickly.

Re: Anyone else have a kid like this?

Can you try a rewards chart?
Find something he really wants...
Make a chart with spaces for stickers.
Teach him to get out of his bed in the morning and come find you without crying so that he can put a sticker on his chart. If he does this 5 or 10 times without crying then he gets his reward.

Is he afraid to get out of his bed for some reason?
