My son will be 5 on the 18th. He won't go to sleep at night he will crawl out of bed and start playing with his toys its late before he will go to bed, and gets up between 5 and 6 in the morning and won't nap just messes around. He has trouble focusing can't do simple tasks bc he's to tired has behavior issues at home and school. I don't know what to do to get him to sleep help please!!!!

Get tough. I took every single toy out of my son's room once when he wouldn't comply. Make sure he knows the rules, tuck him in, maybe give him a book to read, and let him know you will be making sure he stays in bed. Make surehe has a good wind down time before bed, too.
