We can't get our son to sleep earlier than 10-10:30 every night, he is a ball of fire all night long. He naps during the day for about 2 hours, I've tried to stretch him with no nap in hopes he'll go to be earlier, but he just can't do it, we've tried several times. So, he goes to bed about 10-10:30 and wakes about 7:30-8 every day. Please help me, DH and I are getting ZERO alone time at night. FWIW, his almost 5 yo sister is a great sleeper and has been in her bed at 8:30 pm every night no probem since age 2.

Some kids require MUCH LESS sleep than others. My son is one of them. As your son gets older (if he's anything like mine), it'll be easier to get him to bed earlier...even if he's not going right to sleep. Get him in a routine, bath at 8 (or whatever time you want to start at), read a few books, then bedtime....no fussing or getting up. Make him stay, I promise he'll get used to it and eventually things will be fine. I'm just going based on my experience of not being able to get my own son asleep before a certain time.
