An ideal scenario would be a child willing getting into bed, immediately snuggling down and falling instantly asleep without any cajoling or pleading from parents. The more realistic scenario, however, is that many children refuse to admit that they're ready for bed and many other children get out of bed several times before even starting to fall asleep. If this describes your situation, talk to your child's doctor about natural supplements that might help.
