With my daughter when she wouldnt stay asleep at night. This may sound a big mean but I would make her stay in her room until she fell back alseep. Even if that meant that she cried or threw a fit. I also know that it can be a bad thing if they have tvs in their rooms but in my daughters she has a tv and we let her pick out a movie and played it for her that way she stayed interested in staying in her room. I try to get the movies with fast play. that way she doesnt throw a fit to have me start it again.. And now she will go in her room and some nights watch the whole movie and other nights she just watches a couple minutes and goes back to sleep.. I was at my last resort when I put a tv in her room..
