Sleeping problem!

My son started waking up at 3/4 in the morning and trying to stay up until 7 am no matter what I do. He wants to sleep until 1 or 2 in the afternoon, and I am too tired to wake hime up earlier@ How do I get him on a normal schedule again?

  • Honestly, I know it sounds harsh and probably won't help your sleep for a couple nights, but the basis is ignore him. Make him stay in his bed, but don't talk to him/interact with him.

    Getting adequate rest is important for both of you. He's old enough that this is just a habit, not a need. Consistancy and discipline are the bottom line.
