My daughter gets herself all upset when its time to go to sleep. Says she is not having nightmares, just that she cant relax enough to go to sleep. Tried letting her read awhile in bed but that didnt help. any suggestions?

have her take a bath before bed, talk to her about how her day went and ask her if there's anything bothering her as you're brushing her hair. Then try laying down with her and just play with her hair or try anything that would help her fall asleep as a patting her back, or scratching it. Try turning off the TV 15min before bed time so she can relax before going to bed. Last resort is talking to her doctor about it she might have a sleep disorder.
