This is a new issue for us. My daughter, who is 3, has been resisting going to bed for the past 2 weeks. She'll go to bed, don't get me wrong. But she screams and cries the entire time.
I've tried reading to her. Singing to her. Laying down with her and rubbing her back. All the things we used to do. She'll lay down but won't go to sleep like she used to.
When I finally get up and leave her room she starts screaming. "Help me Mommy! Where are you Mommy?" And these loud, ear piercing screaches! And crying and kicking the door.
If I go in and soothe her then it starts again as soon as I leave. If I let her cry it out it goes on for about 20 min. After she's been quiet for a while I'll check on her. Her room is a mess (all her toys all over the floor and her bedding too) and she's sleeping ontop of it all.
