The Little One is Going Through Another Stage. 2


Dear little Jen is refusing to sleep in his bed, so we’ve been refusing to hug, chat or anything after a few efforts to get him to his bed.

Here he is last night… Asleep on my stairs.

And earlier in the week he made a blanket nest instead of getting in bed…

And here he is in his bedroom doorway!

Anyone know why he is doing this? It’s not cute like the photos. It’s actually rather annoying he can sleep anywhere unless its at bed time and in his bed. :-/ We tried reward charts for behaving at bed time, we tried taking away favourite toys or time limits on them for being naughty, we’ve tried ignoring it but he goes on hours. And when he eventually gets to bed we are all tired and grumpy, then to make it more fun there is bed wetting thrown in. Struggling here!

    Bunny often uses what we call “delaying tactics” at bed time. After we retreat downstairs, she uses every excuse she can think of to stay up. She does it less often now because on Saturday nights we allow her a “sleepover”. She gets to sleep on her readybed in our room one night a week. Sometimes we add in a “midnight feast” (8pm not really midnight). Perhaps its an incentive you could try with Jen? One night a week he gets to sleep in your room… IF he sleeps the other 6 in his own bed?
