Last night I was trying to bargain or compromise with a 3 year old. Yes it’s gotten to the point to where she refuses to go to bed at night. Don’t know why but she has. I don’t know what else to do but to take everything out of her room at night. I’m at a complete loss now. We have tried reading books before bed, we have tried playing a little game that she got for Christmas called Pilly Winks and it’s really cool. But we’re still not going to bed. We’ve tried the whole warm bath giving and that’s not working. So it looks like we are at the stage of where she should have been when she was an infant. We got spoiled by her not waking up and sleeping through the night but now when I go in to wake her up in the morning she is grouchy and mean and still asleep. Getting her dressed in the mornings have been horrible too and I’m clueless.
I did however figure out how to get her to drink more water. We make up some magic “special” water and it works. All I do is add a drop of food coloring to her water and it’s magically drunk by my three year old. Now I don’t remember how I can up with this but I did and it works!
