  • do you have a routine? after they eat dinner, do baths and let them have some quiet time until you're ready to take them to bed then brush teeth read a story and lights out :)

  • Why don't you make it a contest and see who can get to bed earlier? Who knows, they may like it better if you make a game out of it.

  • I'd go with a routine, and then let them read in bed or play quietly in bed with a toy, as long as they don't get out. That's what I did with my son..

  • get them up earlier in the day depending on age make naps less long. take them out to Chuckie cheese every now and then let them get some of that energy out that way by time its bedtime they can have a nice warm bath and begin the yawning

  • Routine, routine, routine! My sons are 13 and 5 and I have noticed when I deviate even a little it is like Armageddon....LOL...seriously, get them used to the same thing every night and soon bedtime is more of a habit that just happens!

  • If he gets outta bed you pick him up/walk him back to his bed without saying a word and then walk back out. You repeat this until the child understands and stays in bed.
    If you have acess to i would sugest watching some Super Nanny episodes.
