She has a habit of going to her parents' bed during the night. After that, she is the only one who sleeps well. Her exhausted parents are ready to end this. As Gramma, I will be here for a few days to help. Suggestions are needed!

Thank you Michelle and Sam. That is what they did do last night. Took 2 times and lots of tears, but she did finally go to sleep and stayed in her bed. I expect much the same tonight. You were both right on. Thank you.

What Sam said.
Consistancy is the key. It will be hard and there will still be sleepless nights but she will get there in the end.

When she gets up and tries to crawl into bed with mom and dad one of them or both of them need to take her back to her own bed, retuck her in and tell her it is bed time and that everyone needs to sleep in their own bed. It might take some time and there will be some tears but she needs to sleep in her own bed, it will be better for everyone.
