    Default Bedtime dramas plz help

    Hi my DS5 will not behave a bedtime. He has a bedtime routine. Shower, quiet time, reading then lights out. As soon as its lights out he starts. He wants to read more, or doesn't want to stay in bed. I don't think he is scared of anything he just doesn't want to go to bed. He'll throw all his bedding off (he is on the top bunk due to my stepson being on the bottom when he is here), get off the bed, come out and run around the house laughing etc etc. it's wearing me out. I've taken his tv, movies and toys away and he doesn't care. What can I do to get him to behave at bedtime?!

    You could try sitting in his room. At the door, no talking or anything. Just sit there to make sure he stays in bed.

    Or, if he comes out, plays up etc just guide him back to bed.

    It may take a while but hopefully he gets that bedtime means bedtime soon
