Getting your child to go to bed.

Since moving, as well as my dd's (she's 4) father not being in our life my daughter has been having a tough time going to bed. Since we share a bed and room I usually go to bed with her but I am starting to think it's a bad idea. She doesn't sleep at night and wakes up early. I want to go back to putting her in bed alone but it's not going well. All suggestions would be fabulous. Thank you.

Bump. Idk. My kids have their own rooms and own beds. When we let ds sleep in our room its hard to get him back into the pattern of sleeping in his own room. Didn't have any problems with it until he was sick and was sleeping in our room a lot. Then he didn't want to sleep in his own room. Plus we moved him to a new bedroom about 4 months before his sister was born. That's also when he didn't want to sleep in his room.

I had that same problem before. But my son has his own bed and room. Does she have her own bed and room? If not just start putting her to bed alone. Tell her mommy will be going to bed later. If she gets up keep putting her back to bed. Dont say anything..just keep putting her in bed.

No she doesn't have her own bed or room. I wish she did I liked it but I can't really afford anything bigger. Thank you!

Can you give her the bedroom? Convert a space in living room for you with a room divider maybe....

Um it's not enough space to put a bed in the living room. That's the only option.

i wish i could help my son is the same way but he has an emotional dependency from the trauma of his father leaving us forcing us to move out of state when he was about one (long story) we also share a room he has his own bed but always climbs in bed with us when we fall asleep. his doctor suggested just leaving him in the room to cry himself to sleep but im obviously not ok with that. it might the best option for a "normal" child though

I can't do that to ky either, I know that she's still having a tough time.
