I personally dont find that removal of privelages works for my kids at this age. She's screaming because she wants mummy, mummy says no ipad for a week, she doesnt give a sh!t about the ipad right now, because right now she just wants mummy. She will worry about the ipad tomorrow I also did the pop in & out method, & now I will tell DD a story (usually in the loungeroom,so I am only with her in her room for a short time), do teeth, & tuck her into bed. She can have a couple of books in her bed if she wants, we have lullaby music on, & we leave the hallway light on. I say 'I just need to do xyz & will come back when I'm done'. I'll return 15 mins later & she's usually asleep. Night wakings I will lay with her for a minute,but have also put a mattress on the floor next to my bed when she went through a 'nightmare' phase. I've also done audio stories before when she has trouble settling her mind for sleep.

Hi there, not sure if this would work, but how about slowly starting to do last activities and patting outside the bedroom eg darkened lounge room, and then walk into bedroom and say goodnight. I know this wont happen overnight. I have found the thing that works for us is no stimulation (reading, playing with toys) in their room at bedtime. The association with their room at night is sleep. I found they wouldn't go to sleep and kept stretching the limits as they got ilder because they got used to it and wanted more and more. Now, we have a cuddle, read a book etc in the lounge then walk to bed, no lights on, say goodnight and walk out. Just an idea...
