Getting my daughter to stay over

I've been divorced almost a year. I have an 8 year old daughter with visitation Tuesday and Friday and full weekends twice a month.

My daughter will happily spend time with me and at my house, but she doesn't want to sleep over. I've done everything to make her feel comfortable. Her own room the way she wanted it. I plan fun things to do. I really think it's a great, warm for her.

Everything is fine until we get closer to bed time. She cries and wants to go home. She's stayed a few times but I usually just take her home rather than have her cry nonstop. My ex has custody of her and has not been that helpful in this situation.

Can you offer help? I love her and want her to be happy in my home.

Thank You.
