Psyche Managing anxious child at sleep-time

whats the next step in the management of a little girl, that cries and screams when her mom tucks her in to sleep at night, and leaves her?

Do we simply reassure parents? or let the child sleep with her parents in their bed? or let one of the parents with her in the room until she falls asleep?

I cant recall where I read about this

I would rule out any medical conditions that makes her cry and scream! E.g. corneal ulcer, pin worm infestation etc

Or must ensure that she is not hungry or thirsty!

What's the actual question?

I do not have the full question a friend orally talked about it, and there was NO organic management options: the options were: let one of the parents stay with her in the room tucking her in until she sleeps OR let her sleep with her parents OR reassurance only

I'm not sure what is this question testing us!

Tangled's suggestion sounds good though.
