  • I had to tough it out for a couple of night, I would read my kids a story..then send them to bed..its that easy now. But when I first started it my on would ask me to lay with him..or he would cry for water..maybe even try the "i have to go potty" thing a million times.. I would let him go potty if he asked told him no more water past bedtime, and lay with him for 1 min to explain to him it is bed time I am sleepy and going to bed..and let him lay there. He got up I put him back in bed..it only took him 2-3 night to get it..now my 2 kids go to bed at 7:00 exactly every night...and they pass right out....I love it

  • Get a photo book or make one of him and his sister and let him take it to bed. Also maybe a phone call before bedtime would help.
