Does anyone else have an older child who has trouble falling asleep? My DS1 is 10yo and takes 2-3 hours to fall asleep every night. It used to be about 2 hours but now it's dragging out to 3, and he is getting so so tired through the day.
He does have a few issues happening that could be contributing (Aspergers- bed routine it to read in bed, but it seems to be turning into a 'I must finish this book' obsession, he has mild anxiety, he has enlarged adenoids which gives him difficulty breathing and restless sleep- probably apnoea, also his father is an insomniac... so lots of potential issues there!!) BUT, was just wondering if anyone has any helpful tips on falling asleep, and how I can help him to fall asleep.
I personally fall asleep within seconds of my head hitting the pillow, so I really have no clue about falling to sleep issues.
Any ideas please?
