My Mood:
Re: Teach me how to be a better parent to my toddler. I'm failing miserably.

I have a almost 3y old DS that is hard to get to bed.

My tips are:

Enough stimulus during the day!!!
VERY little stimulus at night. We do bath, reading, dark lights, singing, music, back rub, then finally I leave the room. He usually starts by coming out of his room, telling me he's not going to be...ect.
I ALWAYS put him back in his bed and tell him not to get up!

Sometimes I let him lay in my bed while I nurse DD to sleep and he"ll fall out fast, the DH transfers DS to his room!

That age is hard.
