My 4yr old is a very energetic boy. He doesn't take naps and won't go to bed till around 9:30 .He won't sleep in his bed either. This all is a real strain on my relationship with my husband. Please any suggestions will be appreciated! !!

Wow! You really have your hands full. Okay, this might be to much work but I'm sure it will work. Have a routine for him before bed time like brushing his teeth and reading him his favorite bedtime story. After that put him to bed and kiss him goodnight and let him know that it's bedtime. Make sure there are no toys in the bed. Here's that not so fun part. He's going to get up, as soon as he gets up put him right back to bed and let him know in a stern voice that it's bedtime. You will be doing this a bunch of times until he realizes that it's bedtime. He will start to get tired after a while. But if he cries let him cry and what ever you do do not give in. Because the more you do this the better off you will be. It takes a lot of patience. Have dad join in as well.You both can take turns with putting him to bed. You will know when it works because he will not get up and will be knocked out. I wish you luck and I hope this works out for ya!

Sincerely,
Woman with six kids

Sorry for any confussion in my previous post. I was putting this on here last night via phone and it had it sounding crazy as I couldn't see what I was typing, and we all know how predictive text can be. LOL!!

OK, can I ask you to please rephrase your post, because to me, this sounds like something to do with t a 4 year old and a TV, and the 4 year old is maybe your husband's 4 year old and not yours, but it really isn't very clear at all.
