She has a really hard time falling asleep. She stopped napping at around 4 yrs. old. I heard watching T.V. before bed was not good and stimulated a childs mind way too much so I told my husband no t.v. for them at least two hrs. before bed and that habit is being broken as I type (one day at a time), but it's still a struggle for her. I'm also trying to do a schedule with floss/brush, get bed ready, read and pray to see if that will work. My husband took care of the chaotic bed time before with no schedule...it's been a few days and same results. It's lights out at 8:30, is that too early? Is it okay to let her fall asleep on her own with reading or something quiet? Instead of the threats and yelling at her every five minutes til we don't hear her anymore, that's definately not working!!
