My 2 year old has severe sleep problems. There is a chance she is bipolar (strong family history including myself and her 7 year old brother) and she does go through this in phases. Right now she is in what I would call a manic phase. One of the nice things <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> about these phases is she starts to need only little amounts of sleep. Last night she was up until 11:00pm. I let her stay up last night but then I don't get a break at all. Tonight she is doing the same thing. It is 8:33pm, she normally goes to bed at 7:15pm. She is completely wired. And I have left her to cry. I know all the myriad of reasons its wrong but I am reasonably sure me beating her would be worse and that is how I was feeling when I left her room. She is screaming and I am sitting her about ready to lose it. So what do I do? Let her stay up all night, every night? I am a university student, I have an assignment due tonight that isn't done yet. She is driving me to the edge.
