They are 7 and 5, and the last few weeks they have been playing up at bedtime, till 10-11pm some nights. DD1 has ADHD and doesn't sleep well anyway but Dd2 is just playing up. They keep asking for drinks, running about, screaming and just being annoying for hours.. Controlled crying isn't going to work. I tell them to get into bed and they just ignore me. I picked them up and put them back into their beds, they just get out and start again.. its driving me mad...

Mine are not ADHD but I have been known to do reward charts for bedtime, either that or threaten to take their favourite toy away for a week and carry ot out if they don't heed your warning. Hope they are in bed for you now. x
