We have to turn off all the lights and pretend we are sleeping so my toddler doesn’t get up?

It can be helpful to establish a bedtime routine for your toddler to help them understand when it is time to go to sleep. This may include turning off lights, pretending to sleep, and other cues that signal to your toddler that it is time to rest. However, it’s important to know that each child is different and what works for one child may not work for another. It’s important to consult with a pediatrician or child development expert to help you find the best bedtime routine that works for your child.
