Ok, so my son is fantastic at taking his nap during the day. Every day at 1pm he has a nap and there's rarely an argument about it, he's tired and ready for it.
Bedtime at night however is a different story. Sometimes he freaks out and cries about having to go to bed but that's not so much my issue.
We stick to the same time every night and do the same routine. We have done the same routine at the same time since he was born(give or take a few weeks as a newborn)
It used to go pretty smoothly. Bath at 7pm, followed by a lotion rubdown, jammies, stories and kisses. He'd play a little bit after we left the room but he'd be asleep by 8:30-9pm.
Now he is up until at least 10pm every night, playing or "reading" himself stories.
No matter how many times we go in and put him back into bed, he just gets up and starts playing again.
How the heck do I get him to go to sleep at a normal time again?

I used to stand at the door. No so she could see me but just out of her sight. As soon as their foot hit the floor I was on them. "Get back in bed!!" After a couple nights in a row, she did stay in her bed. I also remind them what time it is. I'll ask "It's 9o'clock. What do we do at 9o'clock?" And now they reply "Go night night." It's so cute when they say it. Then I remind them what we do a bedtime and leave the room. Works 99% of the time now. Unless my daughter isn't really tired, maybe once or twice in a 2week period she gets up. I tell her go back to bed, I'll give her her bear and leave the room again. After the second tuck in she's pretty good. Good luck!!
