She goes to bed at 8 and is asleep by 9 but most mornings she is up at 3 and I have to put her back in her room. then she wakes up her brother at 4 or 5 and I have to put them both back ot bed then she is back up a 6 begging for breakfast. I talked to her ped ans she said that some kids just don't need that much sleep. But damn, the rest of the house does! I keep telling her to wake up go potty and play quietly in her room but it is not getting through. She runs up and down the hall goes in her brothers room and wakes me up. How can I get her to stay in her room between 3 and 6?

How old is she? Would she go back to sleep if you let her get in bed with you? Can you put a gate in front of your son's room so she can't go in & disturb him? Does she take a nap later in the day? Maybe eliminating the nap if she does, would help. That would suck so bad, so you have my sympathies. Maybe you could ask her Dr. about a mild sleep aid or sedative that is non addictive & safe for children. While some kids require less sleep, most this age need about 10-12 hrs. GL!
