My daughter is 7 yrs old and is having trouble staying asleep and falling back to sleep, I will get up and find her sitting awake waching tv and 2, 3 oclock in the morning, If I ask her why she is awake she usually says I can not fall back to sleep...does anybodya have any insights on what I can do to help my child sleep.

Could be a blood sugar issue...apparently when your body gets low at night it gives itself a shot of adrenaline, keeping it from falling back to sleep or staying asleep. Try a decent snack with some protein before bed. This has helped my son who went through the same thing.
