This question already has an answer here:
My 3 year old daughter will not sleep unless someone is in the room with her and when she doesn't want to go to sleep and finally does and wakes up and we're not in there she cries and doesn't go back to sleep at all. I really want to break her of this routine but I'm not sure how. Last night, for example, she would not go to sleep. She finally fell asleep at 1am and so I snuck out and went to my bed and she woke up at 1:30 and stayed awake all night. I asked her why she wouldn't go to sleep and she said just because I don't want to. Please help!
