I'm having serious problems at night w/ my 4 year old...we recently saw the doctor, who reminded both me and dad that at 4, she should sleeping in her own bed, by herself, and staying there all night. I completely agree, and I suspect dad would too, but he lives w/ his parents and his mom is determined to keep her a baby. She lays w/ her every night until she sleeps and then let's her crawl into bed w/ her later in the night. My poor daughter doesn't get why I won't allow this too. They've completely ruined years of good sleep training. I will be having another baby next year...in a very small house, so getting her out of my bed and sleeping through the night is very important. How can I do this w/ out the other family's support? B/c as long as her dad lives under their roof, they will do what's best for his mom, not our daughter.
