Get Your Kids To Sleep On Their Own

My son Tyler hasn’t slept in his crib since he was probably five or six months old.  He is now 20 months old and I usually let him crash in the living room around 8-9pm and take him to bed with me when I get tired.  Tonight I did get him to sleep in the living room but he woke up and I was determined to get him to sleep in his crib.  I probably watched one too many episodes of Nanny 911 but I was like “you know what it is rediculous he doesn’t sleep in his crib”!  On Nanny 911 they tell you to put your kid in thier room and stand outside of it for 15-20 minutes and let them cry.  Trust me that isn’t as easy as it sounds but after him screaming for 20 minutes he went to sleep (pretty amazing).  If you have young kids give it a try.  It is tough love but you and your kids need your own bed for their safety and your sanity!  :)  Score one for Dad…
