    8 year old will not sleep alone

    My 8 year old son was a great sleeper until he turned 5. At that point, he started waking up multiple times in the middle of the night and would come to our room and wake us up. Over the past 3 years we have tried many different things to keep him in his room. Nightlights, rewards, music, background noise, door open, door closed, sitting in his room until he falls asleep, television, no television, etc.. It has come to a point now that he puts a sleeping bag on his older sister's floor and sleeps in her room. I have read many posts about this issue but I have not found anything that helps. Does anyone have suggestions that worked for them?
