My almost 3 year old granddaughter is quite a determined little character which most of the time is a good thing. However when it comes to getting ready for bed she undergoes a complete personality change and can throw spectacular tantrums. After much battling on the part of mum and dad, either separately or together ( depending on who is home first) she will eventually go to bed/sleep. But then she is routinely awake in the middle of the night , out of her bed and shouting r drying out on the landing .This doesn't happen if she stays with me, either with or without her older sister. I think it is now a learned behaviour with mum and dad and seems particularly extreme when she's inadvertently fallen asleep in the car around teatime. This can't always be avoided as the older one has after school activities which require taking the little one out to do the pick up. Any suggestions welcome or signposting to advice .
