My son, Nicholas is 4 1/2 and insists on laying on lounge with his head on my lap and will fall asleep instantly, when told to go to bed he goes but within 1/2hour he is back, in and out, drink, then toilet and on and on, my daughter who is 7, is not so bad, she will stay there, but some nights they not falling asleep before 10pm, it is so tiring....

dinner, bath, bed by 7:00. no excuses, he has a drink after he's brushed his teeth then he won't need one later. tv after school or/and b4 dinner, from the news onwards it's adults time (this'll give you a break too). so there'll be nothing he wants to watch anyways. keep at dinner bath/shower bed BY SEVEN O"CLOCK for two weeks and see how you go. remember no excuses, back to bed, back to bed, back to bed. stay with it as hard as it gets, it will get better.

good luck xx
