This is quite common especially it seems with some little boys of this age. It appears to happen more commonly in children who are very bright.It is important to maintain the same bedtime routine. Read to your son at bedtime. Keep the house as quiet as possible so that there are no distractions when it is time for your son to go to sleep.
