    HI< I think having the sleep issues checked sounds like a good idea. I have not had any expierence with this, but have you tried to really counter his mood. I mean everyone walking around with a clown nose on, or just being silly, funny. It sounds like he has the power over everyone, he is Mr Grump, and so everyone follows his lead. At four he should be able to understand role play, and if everyone takes on a different role, being silly, and not being upset by his grumpiness, perhaps the Mr grump will have to go play somewhere else. Just a thought, Marie.

    I could have written this exact post! My 4yr old daughter is exactly like this! Sleeps 12hrs a night, talks in slp, still wakes during night maybe every second day (just for a quick resettle by mum) and is great at daycare yet grumpy whiney moany at home and is mean and bossy to her big Sis!!! Plus wakes in morning 80% of time in an awful mood who yells and Grumps from minute she wakes. It starts my day off so awfully. I sometimes dread the days she's home all day
