And what do you do if you can't hear them?
Currently our ds's room is next to ours and we leave our bedroom door to hear him (he is 6) if he calls out at night (usually due to a nightmare which is once every 1 - 2 weeks). We are planning on moving house in a few months and we're not sure what to do if the kids rooms are further away from the master bedroom. Obviously our dd who is still in a cot will just be on the monitor still, but what about our ds? He calls out in the morning too, without coming to get us.
Should we just insist that if he wants us, then he needs to come & get us? I'm thinking that it will be hard to do this when we move to a new house as he's likely to be more unsettled and he hates the dark so asking him to move through a dark, unfamiliar house is going to seriously stress him out.
