    Default Ideas needed/ bedtime blues

    For my kid's bedtime, they have to go to their room for 30 minutes prior to the
    bedtime. It is called Quiet Play. They can read or play quietly. Then they
    have to go to bed. I use the point of, it would be more fun if the room was
    cleaned up. At the worst point when they were 3 and 4(Daddy was deployed so
    that did not help), I started by making the bedtime 9 and then after a few days
    it went to 8:30 and then to 8 where it has been ever since. The way it went
    was, if I hear a noise after the bedtime, the door gets closed and if I hear
    another noise the night light goes away. I did stand outside and hold the door
    closed. Only took about a week before they knew I meant business. I was fed up
    at the time so I was past the point of just trying, it had to be done for my
    sanity. Now they are 8 and 9, they normally just read. But they still need
    that quiet time, it is part of the routine.
    I got alot of the ideas that I use from a Jon Rosenthal(I am going to have
    to look this up cause I know that is not the correct name) workshop that I went
    to, sponsored by a County program. It was a video workshop that the school
    district counselor taught. I will definitely find out the correct name. I
    would love to take it again to refresh my memory and learn the things that apply
    to my family today.
