My 6 year old daughter wont sleep through the night. She slept through the night as a baby, but the minute we took away her crib and gave her a big girl bed she refuses to sleep through the night, and I'm running short on ideas of what to do. She will go to bed and fall asleep without any problems, but then gets up at least 4 or 5 times a night some times more, and to get her to go back to sleep is a huge thing, she screams and has total fits until she either passes out from exhaustion, or I let her sleep in my room, and if she passes out from exhaustion shes back up before you know it. I've tried the sticker chart with the trip to the store at the end of the week, I've tried a tv in her room, radio, night lights, big stuff animals, time outs, even the dog sleeps with her now and she still wont sleep through the night. for Christmas I'm thinking about getting her a bed tent and seeing if that will work. Does anybody have any ideas on why my 6 year old won't sleep through the night? What can I do to get my 6 year old to sleep through the night?
