My 2 year old son woke up last night in a fit and he couldn't get out of his room fast enough, it was odd because he never wakes up at night, he's a really good sleeper.
I asked him what's wrong and he pointed to the ceiling and said it hurts, I tried to put him back into bed and he kept pulling his blankets up past his head and he was shaking and than just sat up and cried and said he didn't want to be in there, so I brought him in to our bed and he wouldn't sleep so I brought him back to his room and lied with him and told him that nobody could hurt him and I grabbed a picture of his papa and said papa will protect you and he eventually fell asleep.
This morning he was trying to tell me why he was scared and he pointed to the ceiling and then pointed to the floor, and said up there hurts me. He's never been scared of his room so it's weird that all of a sudden he doesn't want to be in his room anymore, even when he's bad or doesn't listen to me ill send him to his room and he will just stand at the door he won't fully go into his room and he'll cry and say I don't want to be in bed.
We also just got a cat and our cat keeps trying to catch something on the ceiling I know cats always do that but he goes nuts its really creepy
