Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Sometimes when kids are scared they just can't sleep by themselves and that's normal. Do your best to calm her down, give her hugs. If she had a bad dream tell her it wasn't real and that everything is ok. But if she won't calm down it is ok if she sleeps with you. One night now and then isn't a big deal and doesn't set up bad habits.
