It's been over a year now and our daughter refuses to sleep at a reasonable hour. To make matters worse, she now stays up until 3 am! She is so hyper and talkative - all she wants to do is explore the house/play. Nothing we do works and we're so exhausted :( We've seen the doctor about it and she has no suggestions apart from telling us that WE need to cope with it - not HER. Our daughter is almost done with the 1st grade already (she is still 5) and will be headed into the 2nd grade under special classes by June. We all want a gifted child, but the downside is they DO NOT SLEEP! It's like we're being punished for her being bright. It's so backwards. Someone pleaseeee give me some advice here. I am so tired :( She sleeps an average of 6 hours a night.
