My child tries to leave their room after I put them to bed.

A Bedtime Battler stalls or refuses to go to bed at an appropriate bedtime, has difficulty getting to sleep once in bed, and gets in and out of bed or calls out a lot. However, once asleep they will usually sleep well.

To overcome battles at bedtime, it's important to set limits. This means setting clear rules about bedtime and consistently following through on them. Well before bedtime, explain the new rules to your child so they know what to expect. Make this brief and avoid arguing about the new rules.
