Our expert says:
Watch Little Angels / Supernanny, and similar programmes on the BBC channels --- this is not insomnia, nor is it fear keeping them awake, but reluctance to go to sleep amd competing for your attention. And provide the one who keeps asking for a drink of water, with a large bucket of water and a cup, to help himself / herself.
The more you allow the children to dictate, the worse it is for them. Rules need to be drawn up, and kept to, as beauitifully illustrated in those programmes I couldn't advise anything better than the tech niques repeatedly shown and illustrated and explained in those programmes. If you donm't have DSTV access, consider getting it, or ask friends with such access to tape the shows for you. They have a great series of Parenting shows. I am presently in contact with them asking whether any of these can be made available here in DVD format or book form, and will let the forum know if I discover a realistic possibility of this sort
