I'm hoping this is the case. The pallet thing might work

On the flip side of all of this, there will be a day when your kids will never want to snuggle up in bed with you ever again.

And you will be sad about it.

I'd rather not get her to yell and scream to get there. I want to maintain a level of trust between us.
Sometimes you have to just rip the bandaid off man. There's no easy way to do it, and it turns into a battle of wills.

My wife and I are going through the same issue with our almost 3 year old boy. He outgrew his crib about 6 months ago, and we have failed to keep him in his converted toddler bed. Not to mention, getting him to actually go to sleep initially is also a challenge. Right now we read books and then my wife will hold/rock him until he goes to sleep, then we lay him in the bed. We have tried just reading books and then making him go lay down in the bed and walking out, but then of course he either plays and then walks out or just gets upset and walks out. Once he's asleep he's fine until about 2 or 3 AM, and then he comes rolling into our bedroom with his pillow and blanket. My wife will usually take him out of his overnight diaper and change him to make sure he doesn't pee in our bed.

So, the initial challenge is getting him to go to bed, stay there, and go to sleep. We've had a previous pediatrician say to lock our door to the bedroom. She also told us to reverse the lock to the outside and lock his door. We weren't comfortable with any of that, so as suggested we tried to wait outside his room as he got up and then put him back down. Granted, we did this for a day or two, and we gave up too easily. He won that battle. We have also tried staying in the room with him as he falls asleep, either in the rocking chair or lying on the floor beside him. This worked for a little bit, but ultimately he would act like he was asleep and get up after we left the room. Smart little booger! Now we are going to set aside a week or however long it takes and just take turns sitting outside his bedroom, putting him back every time he gets up until we break him.

As far as the middle of the night stuff goes, I'm thinking we'll have to apply this same method there as well, although this is much more grueling I'm afraid. Considering we are all asleep, and then woken up, having to deal with this nonsense is going to take some serious patience.

All this being said, we also have to consider our 7 year old boy who is in the room right next to him, and how it will affect him when the little guy throws a tantrum at 3 am, or when he's acting a fool because mom and dad keep putting him back to sleep time after time. He sleeps pretty well, but last thing we want to do is have them both up! Nightmare!

Let her have a friend sleep over every now and then, they will give each other something to get their minds off of going to your room if they wake up in the middle of the night. Obviously I know you can't let friends sleep over all the time, but just a few nights on the weekend, or week during summer will help her transition to being more independent in regards to sleeping alone. Also locking your door helps, usually they won't knock on it unless they had a nightmare or something.
