You're right, kids do sense our circular arguments. And yet, you're right about him needing sleep--you know what's best for him.

What's just as bad is that I find myself using the arguments that I will renounce later on, like when I want the girls to do something and I say that all of their friends do it.

Try saying, "Well, if you're really not tired then you should be able to go to sleep right now without yelling!" And around and around it goes!

Usually when Lillianna gets like that I tell her that I AM tired but I will lie down with her and rub her back for a few minutes. Since she is actually exhausted, she falls asleep within seconds.


Great post! We use that line on our boys too.
