child wount sleep through the night

Hi i got a problem. My 4yr old son doesnt sleep through the night,odd nights he will sleep through but 9 out of 10 he wakes up 2-3 times a night and then come climb in bed with me. I take him to his own bed but not long he will be back in my room.
Is there any advice on how to keep him sleepjng in his own bed right through the night?

Your son is now old enough to understand that he should be sleeping in his own bed.I presume that there is nothing obvious that is worrying your son now such as something at school. If you do not want him to sleep in your bed and there is no obvious reason why he should,you will need to take him back to his bed each time that he appears. Do not let him sleep in your bed even once. He will eventually get the message that he must stay in his bed.
