Question: My 5 year old daughter was always a good sleeper, but recently she started school in august and shortly after I have been having problems putting her to sleep.
Sometimes she quickly falls asleep, but then wakes up crying sweating and tells me these horrible nightmares that she has or sometimes she won’t tell me and says to leave her alone.Other times I send her to bed and she makes up any excuse to call me in her room so that she doesn’t have to sleep.I have tried almost everything here at home–I have tried dicipline, staying with her until she sleeps, a nightlight–but she goes back to the same thing. Any one have any suggestions or have any idea to what kind of a specialist I should take her to?
