Big Girl Bed Time

CarrieAnn - posted on 05/20/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 2yr old is now crawling out of her crib when it is nap/bedtime. I have a big girl bed for her to start sleeping in. However, to keep her in it is a bit challenging and dumbfounding to me. She has to share a room with her 1yr old brother because of space in our house. Yesterday she emptied her entire dresser into his bed and they were having a "clothes war". Hindsight..this is kind of funny. But the time/energy to put that away is awful. Plus I am concerned for the 1yr old safety as my daughter tends to be rough with him at times. Any suggestions?

you could try to have a bedtime reward chart for your daughter and she would have to earn points...... this could be for extra playtime or a new toy!!! explain to her about going to bed and being a big girl and tht she has to show her little brother how to go to bed like a big kid.

If she gets out of bed, just put her back into bed and keep putting her back into bed but use it witht he reward chart...explain that for everytime she gets out of bed she will either lose a toy or lose points towards her new toy/extra playtime etc...

hope it helps xx
