Some children create a bit of fuss at bedtime – from feeling they are missing out on things to taking advantage of a situation to get your attention.
* Establish bedtime rules.
* Be firm and consistent.
* Offer choices so your child feels in control.
* Problem-solve issues together, eg. nightmares, fears.
* Leave out gadgets at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
* Reward/Praise for good behaviour.
If she argues or refuses, ignore the behaviour you don’t want to encourage.
Don’t argue because that provides the attention that she may be seeking.
