Why is it so hard for our 9 year old to sleep alone in her bedroom? She has convinced herself that she cannot sleep alone. Better yet, that she cannot fall asleep alone. So, she lays awake worrying that she will not be able to fall asleep, and that in the morning she will be so tired she will not do well in school. As the minutes pass, the more frustrated she becomes.
We have tried our therapist. We have tried reasoning with her. We have tried bribery. Any suggestions?
