hey me again! alot of lost venting to make up for so, anyone out there have a manic anxiety ridden kid like mine who pulls all nighters each night or just goes to bed at 3 and 4 a.m. each night? how do you cope? i'm just wondering because we're out of ideas. i try to put her down, yet never works. i try to close my bedroom door she just bangs on it repeatedly screaming my name keeping him up and he's got work in the a.m. we have zero time together which im sure many of you deal with. only way we can watch a movie etc. is if door is left open. anything else and well let's just say we have to try to wait difficult child out till 3 or 4 a.m. it's crazy. years ago i'd sit up with-her. i'm getting older, more tired and incapable of doing that plus she'll be 12. she has to learn how to handle herself, i wont' always be there. so, do you give activities, do you allow them to just roam? what do you do???
