Question: Which Method?
Total Votes: 15
When it's your child's bedtime, do you do the Supernanny method (Put them in bed, give loves and hugs, tell goodnight, if they get up, put them back in bed saying "It's bedtime" and all subsequent times just putting them back in bed, no eye contact, no words) or My method which is put them in bed, giving loves and hugs, tell goodnight, if they get up no big deal, unless they're out of their room or disrupting other's sleep, in which case, they get one warning that it's bedtime, they need to be quiet if they're going to play, then after that, they get time-out if they are disruptive again?
Please explain your choice. (:
Personally, I use "My" method because I have bipolar and insomnia, and have ever since I can remember, so I want to teach SD what she needs to do to get herself tired enough to sleep by her self. I don't feel as though she has no bedtime, nor am I giving her all the control. When we tried the Supernanny method, NONE of us got sleep for about 2 1/2 weeks straight, because she would finally "give up" at 3 am and sleep, but was up before 4:30. This works for us because I am a SAHM, and she can sleep as long as she needs in the morning, which is usually until around 7:30-8:00 after going to sleep no later than 11.
