We have constand battles every night at bedtime. We have a regular routine - I warn her that in 10 minites we are going to bed, the 5 minutes, then we give daddy his kisses, go to the toilet, have a glass of water and change into her night time nappy and her nighty or PJ's and then I allow her to choose which 4 books she wants. She lies in her bed whilst this is happening. Then I say, ok - we are going to turn off the lights and I will sing you a song.
And she goes off ( and not due to my terrible singing!)
She screams, crys, carrys on, jumps out of bed, pounds the bedroom door, screams for her daddy, screams for her grandparents, for everyone!
I feel terrible she is so upset at bedtime - she gets so worked up and
It takes over an hour to get her settled down and it is really waring me down. It just gets me really down.
Is any one else going through the same thing?
