My seven year old has always hated bedtime. She has fought sleep since she was a new born. My 4 YO has always been much more cooperative at bedtime. Lately, they have started playing and talking and giggling at bedtime to the point where they don't go to sleep until 10:30. They go to be at 8:30 and need to get up around 6:30 in the morning for school. I don't know what to do.
We could seperate them, which will be our last resort. However, that will involve taking their playroom and turning it into a bedroom, something that will take a weekend to do. We are in the process of painting our family room right now, so it would be about two weeks before we could get to the playroom.
In the meantime, I want to try other things. Any ideas? They really need to get to sleep before 10:30 to avoid the grumpies in the morning.
