I recently moved in with my boyfriend so we would help each other out. He has a 6 year old daughter. We will put her to bed at 930 and she will come down every hour to get a drink or go to the bathroom. As soon as she hears the tv shut off and us go to bed shes down on the couch. Everytime one of us gets out of bed to put her back in hers she comes up with an excuse as to why shes down here. There is no reason why she cant sleep in her bed. It frustrates he because I know there are children that would love to have their own bed and she wont sleep in hers. For the summer its not too bug of a deal but I want to stop this bad habit now before school starts. Anyone with advice thanks

Maybe she feels like she will miss something if she is in her room. Or maybe she is afraid of something in there getting some spray ( i use the lavender spray from the dollar tree I choose lavender since it also helps relax them and helps them sleep) to spray away the monsters

Good Luck I know it can be hard.
