Hi all,
My 6 year old daughter has never slept a lot even as a baby. She doesn't seem to suffer as a result but she only gets 9.5 hours sleep. She goes up to bed at 7.30 but she says she isn't tired and she really doesn't seem to be. We let her read quietly for half an hour and yet she's still lying there in the dark 2 hours later when we go to bed. We've told her to lie there and think about nice things and to just relax and not worry about not sleeping but its becoming an issue now for her and us. Does anyone have any ideas on what we should do?
