Hello Ladies, I am having the biggest problem with my daughter when it comes to bedtime. She will say anything to stay up, even if she is already in bed and lights off. From tickling to her back, rocking her (which drives me insane...haha), telling a story, reading several books, JUST EVERYTHING!!!! I guess the biggest problem is, is that I am a sucker and do anything she asks, and obviously that leads to arguments with my partner. I would appreciate some suggestions. I am desperate.

Hi Beppy and welcome !

I think the "sucker" part is a problem. I'm no expert but years of watching "Super Nanny" told me that you need to put those kids in bed and leave! Easier said than done....I used to get trapped into "snuggle time" with the girls. Then I'd fall asleep and my husband would be totally irritated.

I finally had to do the "tough love cry it out" method which was NOT comfortable for me. But, it worked. They still give me a hard time every once in a while but they know that daddy won't let mommy fall for their tricks

One thing that worked was to tell my daughter (she was 5 at the time) that she didn't have to go to sleep but she HAD to stay in her room. She would play, look at books and eventually pass out. Then I would go in and turn off the light.

This article has some great tips:

I especially like the "take charge and set limits" section and the "teaching kids to fall asleep on their own".

Please keep posting and let us know how you are doing!!!
