Re: (((Please Help)))
I just saw this on SuperNanny. I mean actual footage so I know this works. Here's what they did. The boy is 2 years old and climbs out of his crib and cries for hours when put to bed. The nanny told them to get a routine and stick to it as #1. Give him a bath, brush his teeth, read a story. Then lights out. Put him in his crib. and then sit down in front of the crib - sideways - so you do NOT make eye contact but so he can still see you. If he gets out of the crib, get up and still not making eye contact, pick him up and put him gently back in the crib. You may be tempted to say something or look at him or even to go comfort him - don't! This mom was just about to give up and the nanny, watching from outside the room, sensed it and went in and sat down next to the mother. Finally the child feel asleep - it took 45 minutes. You are to continue this procedure and as the child gets calmer, you are to inch your way - sideways - out the door, until he falls asleep. The next night only took 25 minutes for child to fall asleep.
The nanny left the house to observe how the parents handled the new rules and routines she had instilled. It was the father's turn to put the 2 year old to bed. He goes in and lights up this really bright night light - then gives the child a musical bear in his crib! the nanny was flipping out. 45 minutes later, the child was still awake. She went back the next day and told the father he totally overstimulated the child.
Try this - let us know if it works! I wish I would have known to try this when my two sons were little! good luck!
If you open the door even a little bit - the devil will fling it open. Keep it closed with prayer.
