My DD is almost 4. We start bedtime at the same time every night (8 pm). Brush teeth, pj's, read stories, hugs, etc.. I keep it routine.
She refuses to stay in her bed. I put her back atleast 10 times a night. She talks to her imaginary friend. Gets out of bed to get toys. Turns her light on. Cries for another drink of milk. Has to go pee. Says she's hungry. Anything you can think of. This goes on until 10pm or after every single night.
By that time I am exhausted, angry, and I wind up yelling at her. You can't force a child to go to sleep, what am I to do? I'm at my wits end..
