My 4-year-old granddaughter lives with me and I have her a lot of the time because my daughter works nights at her job. From the time she was born she didn't really sleep much. She didn't even take an hour nap. And until this day the child just doesn't want to sleep.
I religiously give her a bath for 6:30 and start the process of winding her down. I have her in bed for 8:30 every night. Because my daughter and family members rocked her in a rocking chair and/or layed with her in her bed since birth, it's the only way she'll go to sleep. Friday and sometimes Saturday night I'll keep her up until maybe 10 - 10:30 hoping that she'll sleep late the next day. Well that "never" happens.
I'm really desperate for suggestions. What can I do to make her sleep?
