Start bedtime routine.earlier. for us, i try and start dinner at 5, then after dinner, my youngest takes a bath, then he plays for about 20 mins, he has a snack, brushes his teeth or at least tries lol and then hes in bed by 730pm. Sometimes he plays in bed for a while so he doesn't actually fall asleep for a half hour..

We start dinner around 5. Bath time starts at 7-715 she's in bed by 8. She won't stay in bed. I don't mind it when she sits there and plays quietly with her bedtime toy (giant stuffed catipillar) but she gets up and jumps on the bed and gets out of bed to play with toys. She runs around her room and does head stands up against the wall on her bed. She usually doesn't get to sleep until around 11.

Quoting hplesha:

I have a 3 1/2 yr old and she has just started the whole I want to sleep in te room with mom, or I'm thirsty 55 times, or she gets up n sneaks to the kitchen. I'm having the same issues...I think it's the age. I am just firm and explain if she don't go to bed I don't get to neither does her sister...it don't really work. Good luck tho :)
