  • Maybe you need to tire him out during the day - run him all over the place, take a walk, the park, anything to keep him moving so that by 8 he's ready to sleep.

  • Is his room dark and quiet? If so let him be. If he constantly has you running in there telling him to close his eyes. That is very disruptive.
