When dd was about a year old she started having naps everyday. She is 3 now and if she doesnt want to go to sleep I still put her in her room behind the babygate for quiet time. She doesnt have to get in bed,but she has to stay in there and play. Well lately she comes up to the gate screaming and screaming. She will say any and everything to try getting me to let her out. "Moommmmy PWEEEEZE!!!" or "I gota go potty!" and "I eat eat! Im hungry!!!" I realize she has already had lunch,potty time,etc so I dont fall for these anymore. My question is how long is too long for her to be standing there crying that way? Should I just let her go at it until she stops or falls asleep? I refuse to be manipulated by a 3 year old but Idk what's abuse or neglect in this moment.
