I try to make him play outside after shcool. l have him wind down and watch a little TV before sending his sister to bed and then I send him to bursh his teeth and go into his room to wind down with a book. He waits until bed time to bounce around, act crazy, and won't stay in his room. This is even though I try to get him to do all this after shcool. I take him to the playground and he just sits there and plays in the dirt. He is all over the house with me yelling at him to stay in his room adn read. He runs into his sisters room keeping her up to. I then have to punish him for that and then when I tell him lights out I tuck him in and give him a hug and then he is back up again. Laughing and chasing the cat. He will stay in his room after lights out for the most part but he giggles adn plays with his toys ot looks at comics or out the window. I try taking all the stuff hei splaying with but he find soemthing else. He is awak for school at 6 and he will not go to sleep until after 11 most nights and he keeps his sister up until at least 9 or 10. This is with me sitting near his door so I can keep him somewhat quiet. I am at my witts end. He is alsmot 9 years old and acting 3.
What can I do?
We have a routine
dinner, shower/play, snack, TV, read a book, brush teeth, lights out.
