Early Riser, Fearful Playtime


Our almost 6 year old is an early riser. He is to stay in his room until 6 am and is then allowed to come down and play quietly. Lately he has been coming down and waking up mom and dad because he's scared. We try not to talk to him about this bc we know there's nothing to do about being scared, and think it's probably more being lonely or wanting attention. We tell him to go find something quiet to do and he comes back. Going to his room after dinner and to bed early has worked in the past, but is there a better fix for these tired parents or a way to up the ante, so it doesn't start again?
