my almost 6 year old difficult child will sometimes have an unexpected fit at bedtime. last night, i tried to help him with something that he was struggling with and i made it worse. from that point on he insisted that he cannot go to bed and that he was going to follow me wherever i go. i was in the middle of a video with my husband and it was getting late. i was able to settle him for a few moments by creative talk (he likes to fantasize about being the boss in our house and having all the junk food and toys that he wants). i then said goodnight and he remembered what he had been so angry about and spun right back to that place, didnt end up falling asleep until couple hours after bedtime. any ideas as to getting him settled at night? baths just make him hyper, no interest in stories. i actually bought a standard red hot water bottle that really helped over the last week. nights like last night, though , can wipe a whole good week clean. please excuse my rambling.
