Okay, so here's the long story!
I have 3 kids: 6, 41/2, and 3yrs old. They all share the same room. There is no way to split them up- we only have 2 bedrooms.
We were bad parents, and have been giving them milk to fall asleep with. We just stopped that 2 weeks ago.
Now, bedtimes have always been a crazy, tantrum producing time. They don't settle- they play, talk, get up... I often am yelling at them many times before they fall asleep.
Now that we don't do milk, it's even crazier. They are not falling asleep until 11 or later, and having to get up early to get the oldest to school is killing them. They are soooo grumpy all day because they are tired.
So, now they have a mom who yells and is grumpy at bedtime, and then a no-fun day because everyone is grumpy.
Help!! Any good bedtime techniques that work for you? I'm at my rope's end!
