My son (3) has been waking earlier and earlier! And I’m seriously about to snap. He woke up just before 3AM tonight... just as I literally fell asleep. I’ve been up over almost 2 hours now dealing with him screaming and yelling bc I will NOT put up with this. I can not and will not stay up with him all night when I have to wake up tomorrow morning. Yet here I am awake bc no matter what I do he will NOT quit screaming!
What do I do? I tried putting him back to bed. Nope. I tried letting him play (what he wanted). Nope. I’ve tried to soothe him, yell at him, everything I can think of short of drugging or beating him. Now I’m about to go berserk. I can’t take this. I’m going to literally get 2 hours of sleep and since he’s staying home from school tomorrow (snow) I have NO chance to take a nap when my daughter takes hers. WTF DO I DO?!?!? I can’t do this! I just can’t! I’m so desperate right now!!

I've always been a firm believer in rope and duct tape. (Just kidding)
I like what EmilySusan said. That and also remind yourself that this too shall pass. You're tired now, but fast forward about 10 years and you'll be right back here saying, "How do it get my teenage son to get his butt out of bed."
