Q.

3yr old to sleep in own bed

Hi Doc

I posted earlier and you reponded by saying we need to move our 3yr old to his room. he like one of us to pat him on the bum untill he is asleep. Should we do this while he lay on his bed in his room or should we leave him there to fall asleep on his own after reading his bedtime story?

if we leave him there it will obviously cause him to cry sometime - should we just push through this or are there any way to make this process more smooth? thanks for your help
