I have a 2 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. They lay on the couch and watch tv to fall asleep. I will put on something boring so they dont stay awake just to watch. They do have their own beds, but how do I get them to just go into their rooms and go to bed without me having to sit next to them on the couch? They have always been next to me when falling asleep, even naps. Any ideas?Answer Question
For now continue to do what you are doing they are still too young to tell them to go to bed they are not going to listen you can try but I doubt it.
As they get older just start telling them to go to bed believe me it will all come natural don't rush it. Cherish the moments. My kids 5 and 7 go to bed when I tell them but sometimes they are like aw mom or they'll fall asleep with me on the sofa like u guys and I try not to wake to long before they go into a deep sleep then I can not carry them. So I slowly whisper in their ear and tell them ok time to get into your beds then they wake up half sleepy and go to bed and I tuck them in and give a kiss goodnight. It works for me :) Just give it time.
