Watch Super Nanny and implement her go to bed strategy. You're going to have to hold firm and it's going to be a million times harder because you've given in to the fits.

I got my daughter to go to bed on her own by laying in her bed with her until she fell asleep or sat in the room and read until she fell asleep. Then eventually she learned to go to bed on her own:) hope this helped- good luck

It will work if you're consistent. You just cannot give in no matter how bad the tantrums get.

Good luck my son is three and he will  go to bed in his own bed but wakes up in the middle of the night to get in mine. I try to put him back sometimes but half the time I don't realize he came in until I wake up for work.

Exactly. You do it until it works. Took my kids about 4 days. They were 2&3 at the time.

Every kid is different. Just keep going. It only lasts so long.
