Sleeping promblems

I don't know am I in the right zone to post these things, however, this post is about for one of my friends as she would like to ask for ideas,
My friend has a 13 years old daughter, they sleep with each other with her husband every night, usually, her husband will sleep somewhere in the same room during the night after their daughter slept(I have no idea where but not on the same bed)
Her daughter is the only child of the family, she sleeps by herself when she was a baby and a toddler as she refused to sleep with her parents, but when she is in kindergarten, she started to sleep with her parents, and the whole thing started.She sometimes(every little) sleeps by herself during childhood.She will come to her parent's bed during the middle of the night when she can't sleep when she is in kindergarten.
There is a small period that she sleeps by herself(around8years old), it is very happy news for her and her family.However, she once went to a place that pretends a typhoon hit over the room, she saw pics and how the atmosphere is like so she is freaked out(Her parents does not know she is freaked out).Therefore, she went to sleep with her parents again.
Although she is ok to sleep with people, she cannot sleep alone.My friend always asks her to sleep with her self but nothing is working and they both like to sleep with each other.
As she is growing and puberty is hitting in(mainly about she knows her friends is sleeping by their own), she would like to try to sleep by herself, although she enjoys sleeping with her parents.She always complains it is scary to sleep by herself.

She is often scared to be alone and she is always scared of everything.
She would like ppl to solve the promblem as she can't sleep by herself
She is also able to sleep if there is someone in the room, not only when the person is in the same bed with her.

PLEASE HELPPPPPP
NO OFFENSE PLEASE

I suggest your "friend" goes to visit a doctor for a referral to someone who can give some expert advice. It sounds to me like there are some deeper psychological issues here that need resolving and you won't be able to do that on an internet forum.

Nonsense. The concept of the "family bed" is normal in some cultures. There are some western families who have also embraced the family bed idea.

For the OP, just google "family bed teenagers" and you will be bombarded with articles about how to wean adolescents who have been sleeping in the same bed as their parents all of their lives into their own beds. Here is one for example. http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...-10403903.html

If it was "normal" then the OP wouldn't be looking for a solution now would they?
