She's 10 years old, and she has been having problems with sleeping for 3 years. Every night she struggles to get in a room by herself. She's terrified of everything. My room is right across from hers, and she still refuses to sleep in her room. She cries and screams and begs to sleep with me or my brother. And we're sick of it. It's been happening non stop for 3 years. We have tried everything humanly possible. We tried decorating her room to make it seem more comfortable. I rub her back everynight and sometimes I read her a book. We let her keep her light on and music on. Is there something i'm missing?
I'm sorry your sister is having such a hard time sleeping. It must be very stressfulk for your whole family. I use to have problems with an overactive imagination and eventual outgrew it. I also got a dog. Things aren't so scary with a furry friend beside you! (Though now, I don't sleep well cause my Pug snores and hogs the bed! LOL).
Sing her a song she likes?
I sing and play guitar to my neighbor's daughter. I'll make up a song of the top of my head about her, one that has her name in it A LOT, so that she loves it. :D
My friends little sister has the same problem, she's 7 though. Two people should stay in her room & lay with her until she falls asleep, that's what we do with her sister & it works atleast.
read to her in a mono-tone and she'll sleep. I did that to my sister who had some problem sleeping and she slept in 2 mins > >
Yeah I think it's just her imagination. She's got a lot going on there! :)
We have already brought her to the doctor about it, but nothing helped.
Yeah I wrote that in the discription, I do that almost every night D:
Oh I am sorry.
Well have you tried talking to her about it??!
Lay her on her belly, and rub her back, I hope this helps.
Aww that's adorable :) I'll try that. Thanks!
I wrote in the description that I do :P
read a book to her
tell her stories
