A four year old girl is seen in the clinic for a well child visit. The parents report that she sleeps poorly. She often wakes up overnight and cries out for her parents. They go in and lie down beside her until she falls asleep. An hour later she is awake and cries out again for her parents. The parents want this to stop as they are exhausted.
