How do you get your 3 yr old to go to bed to sleep instead of falling asleep on the lounge.

My son will be 3 in March, but one idea is to let your child know 10minutes before bedtime that it is time to get ready for bed, then they know ten mins later they need to be in bed. Let them say goodnight, brush teeth etc before guiding them to bed. good luck :)

put them in bed and if they get out put them back and keep doing it - it's exahasting and frustrating but in the end it's worth it. you may have to sit with them for a while but just sit don't interact except a firm but gentle good night go to sleep. once they get used to being in bed you can move further and further away from them until the joyful day you can put them in their bed say goodnight and head downstairs. good luck
