My 18-month-old is ready to graduate from the pack-n-play in our room. We only have a 2-bedroom apartment right now, though, so the only other option is to share a room with her 3-year-old brother. He sleeps fine, stays in bed no problem, always has. She, on the other hand, wants to get up and play. (The 3-year-old stays in bed, even when the toddler gets up to play.)
Should I go in there every time I hear her get up and tell her to get back in bed? Wait a certain amount of time, like 5 minutes? 10 minutes? Let her play herself out and she'll go to sleep eventually?
Should I keep at this until she goes to sleep in his room, no matter how long it takes? Or should I move her back into our room if it gets to be too late?
How would/did you handle this? What worked for you?

I was a spanker. A good couple of swats on the but stopped my kids from getting up after I put them to bed.
But if you do not want to go that route. I would just keep putting her back to bed tell she feel asleep.

Next question overall
Do you think bisexuals are just confused or are just looking for attention?
