I need help getting my 7 yr old to sleep by herself!
My daughter has been sleeping with me since she was born. Her father and I separated and divorced when she was 18 months. When she is at his house she sleeps with him. She just turned 7 on Saturday. Her step father and I are trying to get to sleep by herself and are at a loss!! She is very dependent on me. If I go upstairs she is up there by my side within 2 minutes. The only "alone time" my husband and I get are on Saturday mornings when she, after throwing a fit, agrees to watch tv in her room. I feel that she has dependency issues because of the divorce. Also, her father and I live in different states so she goes back and forth to see each of us. Anyway, please help! I need all the advice I can get with this issue.
