The Sh'ma is directly written in the Torah (5 Books of Moses).
Since it says "When you lie down and when you rise up" one is supposed to say it twice a day.

Thinking about the meaning of the words (Kavanah) does indeed bless a person very much. All Jews (and all people if they want to) should teach these words to your children and grandchildren. Reply

Baruch HaShem! I say this prayer every night with my two boys! It reminds me of my younger days, and solidifies their Jewish identity.

I also like reading the translation to them some nights too. It really helps them go to bed. Reply

To Ilana Tehillim can be said during the daytime. If it is an emergency situation G-d forbid, Tehillim can also be said at night.
You can find the text of Tehillim on this site, if you have a Tehillim book, take a look at the back, you may find a list of when to say specific chapters, but really any will do. May everything resolve itself for your daughter in a positive way G-d willing! Reply
