Hi

Anyone can share how you managed to send your child to bed hassle free?

I got my son ready for bed at 8.45pm the bedtime ritual can dragged 2 hours every night. I find it very exhausting having to send him to bed every night.

Despite reminder and warning and resort to caning and scolding it just didn't make it easier and lesser time spent on to get him to go to bed.

Why does it drag so long? Do you have a set routine and have you been doing it consistently?

I had a bedtime routine for my kids from the time they were babies, and I've had very few bedtime issues except occasionally when they were toddlers. From the "bedtime" call to lights out would be about 30mins. Of course the routine was modified as they grew up and they put themselves to bed now.

I am also looking for set routine. I have read about tips for nighttime potty training, if you want than you can read it.

Could this be due to the afternoon naps?

What are his wind down activities?

If bedtime ritual takes two hours, could it just mean that you should put your kids to bed at 10.30 pm instead of 8.45 pm.
