My son is 22 months old and we switched him to a toddler bed about 2 months ago. At first he was fine, we'd read him a story and he'd go right to sleep. However these last few weeks he's been getting up and coming to his door. I have to tuck him in between 5-10 times before he will actually go to sleep. How do I get him to understand that I mean business without resorting to spanking him every time he gets up? I don't want him to associate bedtime with negativity.
