I have been trying to up my daughters sleep time from whenever she wants (10:30-1:00 am) to a set 10:00. Shes 28 months. She has been screaming and crying since 10 and its now 12:40. Weve tried cuddling, going to sleep with her, walking around with her in our arms, we checked on her countless times but she just did not want to go to sleep.
My mom came in (we split a house, theres two suites and we pay half of everything and have separate food and fridges) to our living room and said " if she keeps crying do you mind if i go in there and cuddle her?" i say no, she HAS to learn that bedtime is bedtime and theres no getting out of it since this is the 3rd night this has happened (we go in to check on her and she usually stops after about 5 min) but the last two nights its been 1+ hour of screaming pissy fits just because she dosent want to sleep. And my mom says this.
If you dont go in there and get her, I will regardless of what you say.
I snapped. I said NO. YOUR NOT. YES, I AM and we get into a screaming match and at one point i believe i said i dont care if your the fucking queen of sheba, shes still my kid, not yours, so what my DH and i say goes.
Who was right?
And BTW she could only hear her when she went into the kitchen. She was in the living room the whole time for the most part. And she did finally go to sleep when DH went riding around with her n she passed out in the carseat. I asked this question last night but would like more opinions. AND WE DO HAVE A NORMAL ROUTINE!!!! HER bedtime has been 10 for TWO YEARS. This is totally out of the bule and im trying to get her to grow out of it.
