Our expert says:
She does this because you let her! A child's first priority is attention - the more the merrier. She needs to understand that she can come to you any time she has a problem, but her own bed is where she sleeps.
When she arrives at night, sooth her, take her firmly by the hand, and lead her back to bed. If she reappears, her father should then do it - that way the message is loud and clear that she is not going to manipulate one parent against the other.
Be firm - she will not come to any harm, and both you and she will get a decent night's sleep.
