Hi I’m new to this site but it seems great so far just need to work it out .... my partner has two children with a lot of problems being from a broken family with issues too many to mention here but I don’t know how much more I can take ... one issue is bedtime.. the 7 year old will not go to bed without my partner in his room. We have to turn everything off and say we are all going to bed me in a separate room so he can sleep with his dad but he also will not go to sleep unless his dad is asleep as well .. we have tried him in his own room but he will not stay on his own or even get into bed without his dad there ... please does anyone have any advice? I am desperate to be able to sit up with my partner and watch tv or talk ... there is no adult time without my partner sneaking out at 10.30 or later once the boy is asleep soundly ... this has to stop but the little one does have so many fears and anxieties we can’t make it worse and as my partner only has them every second weekend he wants everything to be smooth but surely this is not the way to go? The ten year old does anything to stay up including starting a serious conversation with her dad as soon as bedtime hits ... I am at my wits end ..... thanks any help appreciated
