what do you do to get your child to sleep?!
DS (age 5) has been staying up so late. I work an early morning shift & we get up at 0530. Its 1035 & he is STILL awake. No naps. He took a shower at 7, brushed his teeth & went to his room. He's just been talking to himself, doing whatever he can to keep himself awake.
He used to go to bed at 8 or 8:30 but he has been trying to push his luck since Dad deployed last week. His psychiatrist thinks he should go to bed at 7 & be asleep by 7:30 to get enough rest, but its like the earlier I try to get him in bed, the more he fights it.
In the mornings I have a severely cranky child. Help?!
