My 18 month old GD has started playing up at bed time with my son and DiL - screaming for up to 3 hours. They say they try to calm her but as soon as they leave the room she starts screaming again.
She went down fine for me and her other granny a couple it times recently.
I have offered to pick her up from nursery for a couple of days in a row and put her to bed to try and break the pattern.
I wonder how long they should let her scream before going back Into the room. I know it's stressful to listen to but.... any advice I don't want to appear to be telling them what they should do - it might not work anyway but I do recall allowing my kids to pretty well cry themselves to sleep occasionally when they were acting up and I knew there was nothing actually wrong. I would sit at the top of the stairs in tears listening to it though!
