My 3 yo daughter is generally well behaved but lately bed time has been a nightmare. We have a bed time routine and she goes to bed at the same time every night, but it's a huge battle. She has her comfort items in bed with her and a lamp with a very dim bulb, and is allowed to read a book that she picks. But she won't stay in bed and will turn on the light and scream at the door to get out. More recently she's been hitting me and screaming till she throws up. She has not fallen asleep before midnight in the last 3 days. I've tried eliminating naps but then it's worse because she is over tired. I just don't know what else to do.
