I have 4 children and my older 3 are nightmares.
Every night it's a struggle to get them asleep.
My oldest is 7 are generally is good but has his moments. Next is my 5 year old daughter and 3 year old daughter who are my worst. Every night is a struggle to get them to sleep. They want to sleep with me but 930 I give up. Last night we were up to 11. And they don't sleep during the day and they are up by 7am. I've tried everything. We have routines which I've been doing for years but when it comes to getting them to fall asleep it's a friggen nightmare. We get no alone time at night. Kids should be asleep by 7. Why are my kids still crying and screaming at 11!!!!
I leave a light on. They have soft fairy lights on. I tried Turing them off. I tried tv. I've tried books. I've tried super nanny approach. But when I'm dealing with 3 constantly coming out crying or wanting stuff I give up. I'm exhausted from lack of sleep and have headaches from the constant noise. I'm done dealing with their crap. Seriously how hard is it to go to sleep at 7. I start this routine at 8 and its now almost 9 with my two girls crying. I hate this. I put up with this fight for over two years. I need professional help!!!!! What can I do!!!! My 1 year old baby is the best
