My 8 year old girl is an angel by day and a nightmare at bedtime! I don't understand why she behaves the way she is! We will read together, kiss and cuddle then it's bedtime, sometimes I will hear the excuse she is feeling poorly when clearly there is nothing wrong with her, and that is before she goes to bed, other times she calls me after she has been put to bed and I'm downstairs with the excuse she cannot sleep!
A tantrum will often be the outcome because she asks for cuddles or to come into my bed and I Won't give in to her, so she screams and crys and bangs things!
I've tried being calm, I've been angry and shouted, I've taken things off her and grounded her, I'm at the end of my tether and I need help!!!! please!!!
