Daughter with ADHD can't go to sleep
This is a Ritalin-independent thing. Seems no different from before she took it, or day she does not take it: she just has a hard time settling down. She (7) and her brother (6) share bunk beds, and he's no star sleeper either. We have a wind down routine of books, then singing and stories. Often backrubs. But she gets this tired silly impulsivity and just can't be still or quiet. Really not sure what to do. Want to teach her how to settle down so that she can peacefully slow her mind and enjoy bedtime. I'm a horrible choice to be teaching anyone how to do that, having had insomnia nearly all my life. Any suggestions?
