    As a child therapist and a kid who had LOADS of trouble sleeping: this may sound dismissive but I promise you it isn’t: don’t panic. Two: there ARE more medicinal options for your child if this continues. They are short term and not addictive and NOT like adult sleep meds. You need to work with her pedi and a child psychiatrist to work them out. Three: just like with us, it’s her daytime that has to change for her sleep to change. Heavy exercise, shutting off all electronics three hours before bed, and nightly “brain dump” convos about her anxiety could really help. Good luck. Transitions are hard!
