My 10 year old girl is waking up almost 5 days a week between 12 and 3 am, comes down the stairs from her room to our master bedroom downstairs....wakes us up and want me to take her back up and put her to bed and tuck her in. She says she is scared of various things at different times -- intruder, ghost, closet monsters, something under the bed.... This started in last 6 to 8 months ago slowly and now she is consistently doing. I spend time with her in her bedroom before she goes to bed talking about her day,and also assuring her and also teaching deep breathing techniques, encouraging her to tell herself that it is not real etc when she wakes up. So far unsuccessful. She is losing her sleep and my sleep.....getting very tired, Any suggestions?
