My daughter and 4 year old granddaughter live with me and my husband. My granddaughter will not go to sleep unless one of us sits in her room with her. If we try to leave before shes sleeping, she panics and cries. "No, Don't leave me! Stay in here!" If we stay she falls asleep fine. Then, around 1:00am she wakes up and goes in to sleep with her mom. She won't stay in her room. She seems genuinely afraid to be in her room alone. It's affecting her moms sleep. And, she acts that way during the day sometimes, too. She has a radio w/quite music, her little cuddle puppy, her overhead light in on a dimmer. My daughter just recently put a small TVn her room, too. Makes no difference.
Any suggestions? Forcing her to stay in there if she is truly frightened isn't an option.
