Go out.

Seriously. Go for a drink with a friend. Grit your teeth. You can't go on like this!

Go for a walk, go next door for a glass of wine, do not be held to ransom. If you allow this to develop, you will be unable to go anywhere or do anything as you will need to put him to bed first.

So if, you were offered the chance of a girlies overnight somewhere you would be snookered as you need to put DS to bed.

Sorry if this sounds harsh,but I know some one it happened to and by the time they decided to knock it on the head it was learned behaviour and took for ever to break.

my ds is a bit like this. he's 3. he knows that we have a rough alternate nights rota, or one of us does bath & the other does bed. he checks to see who's on which duty! he screams when dp takes him off me to put him to bed but i have become tough. he's also been known to say to dp "ok daddy, you go downstairs now & i'll cry for mummy" . not tonight though, too tired...

my two do exactly the same thing and it drives me nuts as i `m the only one to be able to do it therefore held ransom!! but one day i shouted at them(badmum) and walked out the door after already threatening them i would do this... and walked and walked until i thought they were asleep ..just to give myself a break and although they cried when i left dh said it was much easier or maybe you could say o;k on thurs for eg daddy puts you to bed and keep to it come what may

All is quiet he must have fallen asleep. No he has started again.
