  • Try making her bed a special place of her own....Like letting her paint it herself or....let her pick out her own blankets and sheets.

    Just a suggestion....

  • it really sucks...but you have to be firm. even if she cries like mad, that is something she needs to learn to do....I'm so sorry, I know that sucks

  • I read the best way to get a child to sleep in her/his own room was to be consistent. It is going to be hard at first because it's your child and it 'll be easier just to let her sleep with you; however, you'll have to be firm. Just keep taking her to her bed, don't say anything, and if she does it again then take her to her bed again. It'll tough but it works, it worked with my child.
