Before anyone posts the responses of its my fault, please know that for a few years my daughter shared a room with me due to some downsizing and changes in our lives. Last year we were able to move into a much bigger place and I made my daughter the most beautiful girl's room, a room any little girl would want. My daughter will NOT sleep in her room. It's to the point when I put my foot down and tell her no, she must sleep on her own, she will lay there sobbing for hours. When I ask her "sweetheart, what is so scarey about your room?" she tells me "What if someone comes in and you can't protect me.. " our home is a split plan so my room is on the otherside. We have never had a security issue where she should have to worry about that, I don't know how that started, but she seems legitimately afraid that I won't be able to protect her if she's in her room at night. Anyone else ever have this issue ? What did you do to get your child on the right track....
