I suspect this is just an issue with transitions or excessive fatigue, but throwing it out to the wise folks on here anyway.Our 3.5 year old has the hardest time in the morning. He'll cry for 10-15 minutes and have a few temper tantrums immediately upon waking. Doesn't want comfort, doesn't want breakfast.I think there are two factors at play here. First, exhaustion. He just won't go to sleep at night and often stays up until 9:30 - 10:30, playing in his room or reading. We can make him stay in his room, but can't make him go to sleep. Then he wakes up between 5:30 and 6:30, whenever his sisters wake up and won't go back to sleep. He rarely naps.The second factor is that waking up is a transition time and he has a lot of of trouble with transitions. Our best bet is to just sit him on the couch and let him zone out to Dora or Diego for 25 minutes; then he is in a lot better mood.Is this within the realm of normal? Any tips for getting him more rest? We've even tried sleeping with him, but he just won't fall asleep. We've tried music, have a standard bedtime routine, etc.Any other thoughts/advice?pachouly
