Ever night my 6 year old daughter won't go to sleep. I have tried everything from sitting outside her door to lavender spray and even getting a local Guard to speak to her. We are at our wits end at this stage. Any advise would be greatly appricated!

My daughter used to do this too, what worked for us was when she got up I would take her hand walk her back to her room and simply say it's bed time. Don't get me wrong it took awhile and was very frustrating at times. The only thing I would say though is bedtime, nothing else and it worked. We only tried this after knowing that there was not a specific reason she was getting up (like being scared or something) by me not saying anything else but it's bedtime she got it within about 3 or 4 nights! Good luck I hope this helps :)

Ok this may sound crazy but we bought a "laser show" from spencers gifts. It has four different settings and speeds and two different colors that you can display on your childs ceiling. We read two books and then turn on their light show. My six and four year old are asleep within fifteen mins. It cost $100. I even use it for my five month old qhen she wakes up at night. Just dont leave it out for her to play with.its not made to be a toy.

Does she actually get up out of bed and come out of her room or does she just lay in her bed awake?
