I am so ready to kill 'im. So we used to have A LOT of sleep issues. In the last year and a half we have taken him off of the melatonin and he has been sleeping on his own- most night at a reasonable hour. All of the sudden in the last month he has started to FIGHT bed time. Screaming, stomping, making excuses (both reasonable and not) Just making a racket. Problem? We live in an apt and there is a family under us with small children. I am SO TIRED of fighting about it that when it started tonight I yelled 'FINE- I don't care if you go to bed or not tonight. You can stay in your room or sit quietly on the couch no tv. Just leave leave me alone. Pick your own bed time.' He tried to argue with me about that so I told him he could do what he likes about his bed time - I am not arguing with him and I will not be speaking to him the rest of the night- good night love you. He ran to his room crying but has been in and out of his room playing for the last hour and a half. Any bets on when he chooses to go to sleep? Thank GOD we will be going to the psychiatrist tomorrow. We will ask about reintroducing melatonin to his evening routine.Answer Question

I feel your pain. Jeremy has gotten out of bed numerous times. My favorite excuse so far is he got up to ask me if I had medicine for bruises. I asked him where the bruise was at and he said he didn't know. UGH! I threatened to take his game away for tomorrow's electronic game party at school.
