    Well in order for your or your girlfriends child to sleep the child has to be tired. As you may know kids are hyper-active and need a good amount of exercise in order to feel tired. Should try not to make them do physical exercise near bed-time as it will awaken them more. Make sure they are in bed by 9:00PM. Maybe a bed time story may help them feel a bit sleepy and a glass of milk with not to much sugar in or not at all in that case. Make sure they have no sugary snacks near bed time, they should just be tired and ready for bed.
    I suppose all of this is harder in reality but if you try and make it a habit i’m sure you’ll work wonders.
    Good luck to you and you girlfriend!
    Hope this helped:)

    I would say it depends on if he’s taking a nap in the middle of the day or not. The only suggestion I have to is to play around with adjusting his sleeping patterns. I went through something similar when my oldest was around 5 except for he would go get on the couch after roaming the house for 10 minutes, lol. I wound up slowly adjusting his nap time by waking him up earlier and earlier and then he would be tired enough at night to sleep through the night after being put to bed.
    Every child is different, though. This is merely a suggestion.

    lock him in his room each night and don’t respond to his pleas to “free” him.

    I would say that she talk to her child during the day and let them know that he has to stay in his own bed from now on. During the day KEEP reminding him that this will happen tonight. Say something like “Tonight you will sleep in your bed all night long.” And when he gets up to get in her bed, she should say nothing to him and just walk him back to his own bed. Continue this everyday and night until he is sleeping on his own all the time. It will take patience but make sure that she doesn’t talk to him while walking to his room, kids see this as a chance that there may be some le-way on her decision. Good luck!
