My daughter is scared to death to sleep in her room...or any room that is...alone. She is 10 years old and could care less about her dad and I sleeping together. She has to sleep with one of us every night. We've had some deaths in our family over the past couple of years and sometimes I think that might be what is hindering her from sleeping in HER room. Her pediatrician prescribed a mild calming med to be taken at night. Well, it only helps a little bit. I miss being with my husband! I don't like the feeling of competing for time alone with him.
This is isn't all though...the other night she had spend the night company and she insisted on me sleeping in the room with them. She told me if I didn't that she would have to sleep in the bed with me. I gave in because she started crying and panicking. I'm sure the friend is real impressed that "mom of 5th grader" had to sleep on the floor!
Maybe she needs more then medication... Time for her to see a psychologist/therapist I'd say!
