my 3 are adults now & now i have 6 grandchildren & i came from a large family, so i can say that each child is different. some never do, the ones that do grow out of it @ different ages. my 1 GD is 8 & rarely makes it through a night with her own bed! after her father past away (he fell asleep @ the wheel commuting from one job 2 the other, crashed, was trapped in the vehicle & burned to death!), she stopped being able to sleep alone. she was 2yrs old @ the time. before that, she was fine. we haven't been able to change it since. i know that she will be ready @ some point and we have tried and continue to try everything but i believe patients, understanding and persistence in effort will get her there.
