My 5 yr old daughter gets out of bed in the middle of the night and likes to sleep on the floor in my room. There are nights when she will sleep in her bed all night but most nights she comes into my room. She goes as far as being rude, demanding, bossy and cries. She'll say, "Get my pillow and blanket....I want to sleep here". I even go as far as even bribing her but she will still get up several times during the night, I will walk her back to her room. So, she can tell me the she is earning her reward for sleeping in her room. Does any one have suggestions???? HELP!!!!Answer Question
Quit giving her rewards. It is not a chore to sleep in your room, it is a requirement. sounds like she is the parent here. No more rewards and when she comes into your room to sleep, she is disciplined. Make sleeping in your room without a good reason (sick, scared of storms) a negative thing rather than to reward for staying in her own. Take away a privilege if she does this.
