  • put her down in her room, stay in the room w/her til shes asleep then slowly work your way out of the room each night (like further from her bed) til you are outside her door then make your way to the living area. as for the tantrums, shes plenty old enough to reason with, explain that hitting hurts and it hurts peoples feelings and if she hits people they will not want to play with her. when she throws that kind of tantrum, leave where ever you are, if you are home, put her in a room by herself until she calms down. then go in and talk to her. as for the not napping during the day, she may be over tired at night, so see if she will nap during the day and if that affects her sleep pattern at night in a positive way. if my daughter (3 1/2) is over tired she will wake up earlier and not sleep well when she does sleep.
