I have 3 kiddos, a 5 year old that just started kindergarden, the 3 yr old and a 1yr old. My 3 yr old is usually a really great kid, likes rules and behaves pretty well. However we have been having bedtime and night issues, she will lay in her bed and scream whenever she feels like it (at bedtime or 3am), total melt down city. Doesn't like the dark, we got her a flashlight and a light she can turn on, can't sleep, we tried letting her watch a movie to fall asleep. I can't let her lay in her bed and scream, my 5 yo has to sleep so she can go to school (they share a room), and I can't put her in the baby's room, she'll wake him all night. These screaming fits when she doesn't get what she wants is breaking me. I don't want to punish her, but I feel like giving in is just making the problem worse. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!
