Bedtime Trickery.

A trick to get your children to love their own bed and to stay in it:
Tell them that there is a rule. On Wednesday, (or whatever day you choose) all children will sleep in their own beds.
Then make a big, exciting deal of it. Mark the day on a calendar and check off each day until this ‘special’ day when all children over the age of ….. finally get to sleep in their own beds.
Tell them that many wonderful things happen in their own bed.
Tell them that there will be a surprise for them in their beds on that night.

The surprise is a flashlight (that works) and a book.
Then the rule is that the book and flashlight can only be in their bed at night.

… and of course, play PACIFE Music to Calm
