Open discussion by parents and parents-to-be about child raising issues.
My son is 18 months old and will not fall asleep on his own or easily. He has never slept through the night and has a constant schedule of wake ups at 9, 12:30, 3:30, and 5. He then will either get up for the day or go back to sleep till 7 or 8. When he gets up early, he spends the entire morning screaming cause he is tired and frustrated because he cannot do something he wants to. Putting him to sleep is a wrestling match in which case we usually have to hold him and let him yell for a few minutes before he falls asleep. No matter what schedule he is on, or what we try to set, nothing helps. Even his doctor said she doesn't know what's wrong and besides medicating him, she doesn't know how to help. Well I would rather not put him on medication until absolutely necessary. So CIO is my next option but I don't know where to begin or how to do it properly. I've just got to do something before I give birth in September. Thanks in advance
up and nothing I'm doing is helping her to understand that What she is doing is wrong. She tore down the shelf in her closet today and its got Me so mad I can't stand it. What do I do?????
