We always had a kid we tossed in bed and 5 mins later he was asleep. Up until about a year ago anyway. Now he can lie for hours before nodding off, even when we make sure he is physically tired too. He tells me he has too much going on in his head. Does anyone know any good techniques to help him relax and empty his mind?

One trick that works for some adults is to write down their thoughts. Perhaps he could try this, or maybe get him some worry dolls to talk to?

What's his routine from getting in from school and is he happy at school?
