It will get easier??? I am ridiculously tired today. I barely had 2 hours last night. My son will not stay in ANY room on his own, at the moment. It could be a phase, but being autistic, this phase could last ages. It's been several months now.
He actually shares his bedroom with his 10 year old brother, but they have bunk beds. This means, when little A wakes during the night, he can't see RJ, so he panics. This sends him running to our bedroom or, sometimes if I'm not quick enough, his teen brothers bedroom.
To top it off, he has been unwell this week, so he has been home everyday. This basically means he is with me where ever I go. I know most parents can't go to the loo alone, but my son is nearly 6 now. It's not even the going alone, it's the out right panic it causes him, if he thinks he's been left alone!
