  • My youngest has been saying that too. I just make sure he has a little snack and a small drink before his teeth are brushed. Then I give him a hug and kiss and then ignore his complaining about it. Now he thinks that saying he has to pee will get him out of his room...ha ha ha!

  • He does it to delay from going to bed. Don't give in and he will soon quit.

  • My DD was doing this too. I told her how nasty it is to have that stuff before bed & that it will rot her pretty teeth out. SO, we agreed she can have a piece of fruit 1/2 an hour before bed. It's been 2 days, but it's been good. She has not been calling me still awake saying "I'm STARVING!"

  • He is stalling so he can stay up longer. As long as you give in he is going to keep doing it.
