We have a nice quiet bedtime routine, up to bed between 7 and 8, wash, story, kiss goodnight but here the routine always goes wrong. DS, who is nearly 5 then turns into a wild banshee racing about, disturbing his sister and doing anything other than settling down. Its driving everyone bonkers- what am I doing wrong? Does anyone have any suggestions to help him wind down? I left him to read a book the other day but when I do that he takes it too far and ends up pulling every book he has out and using them as ramps for toy cars.
I wish I could be of help but if you find a way please tell me and the dd's friends mums because we are all having the same bedtime nightmare with all our f 5 year olds. Was round at a friends tongiht her dd and my dd are in the same class I left at 9 her dd still not alseep got back home my dd still not alseep. Driving me barmy.
