it took time with my daughter, but now she sleeps in her bed most nights.

first i let her help set up her room an made a big fuss about her bed, italked to her about how she was so lucky to have her own bed an how she was going to be sleeping in it now.

i created a structured evening routene dinner, shower, pjs, brushing teeth, story and bed (you can do it in the order that suits you best) lots of hugs an kisses an then leave the room.

at first i had to keep putting her back into her bed but she got the msg, i let her sleep with me once a week an then made it once a fortnight, now we are at once a month, however she does still come in sometimes in the middle of the night. most times i let it go unless she tries to wake me up.

hope that helps some

I am assuming your kids are toddlers? I would put them to bed early enough that you can be up until they fall asleep, then go to bed. They may still get up in the middle of the night and join you but if you are consistent and persistent they will soon be in their own beds all night. At some point you just have to let them know they need to stay in their own room. It might even help to let them wear an old t-shirt of yours to bed too. That way they can still feel conected and since your shirt will have your scent it may help them feel secure in their own room. (just a few ideas)
