  • Set a bedtime. Set a routine for bed time and stick to it....she will fight you at first...if she does, ignore it.....if you stick to your guns, it will work.....

  • Be consistent and give her a bath and a story and put her down to bed.

  • From day 1 we kept our kids on a very tight schedule. To this day my 14 yo goes to bed at 9:30 or 10 and my 12 yo goes to bed at 9. They were allowed to be up but at bed time the lights were out. They could stare at the ceiling but they eventually fell asleep. We told them that the time after their bedtime was mommy-daddy time and they needed to go to bed.

  • make a bed time. and then make a nightly routine of brushing teeth and pjs. Then get her to go a little bit early for storytime and she might go to sleep faster. Or just something to do in bed like color wonder or even a movie. And might take awhile but in time she will catch on
