My sons is 2 and half years old. He is usually well behaved and happy child, however for last 3/4 months I have been having a huge challenge to put him to bed. He just refuses to sleep, so the bed time ritual becomes battle field, eventually making it almost impossible for him to fall asleep. I start the bed time routine at around 9 but he could go to sleep earliest is 11 pm. Last two weeks have been worse, he could sleep only at or after midnight. One big consequence of this is that he becomes very aggressive during our battle to put him to sleep. I also get irritated and would lose temper so I would scold him or shout at him. He also reacts with aggression - he hits me, punches me or get himself on the floor crying out loud. I am unable to understand both the disputations (sleep problem and anger) and need help to deal with it. Please suggest!!!
