Q: My daughter, who just turned 3, has a surge of energy after dinner and can take hours to fall asleep. I try putting her down around 8 o'clock, but there are nights when she doesn't fall asleep before 10. Sometimes she tells me she's tired but can't fall asleep. At other times, she will throw a tantrum before bed. When she stops she'll say, "I'm done crying, now I can sleep." In addition, her naps have never been regular. I usually need to put her in the car and take a drive for her to nap. When that works, however, she will wake up too early and start throwing tantrums. When driving around doesn't work, she falls asleep late in the afternoon and only takes a short nap, which makes it that much more difficult for her to fall asleep at bedtime. She usually gets a total of 9 to 11 hours of sleep a day. Sometimes she'll wake up in the middle of the night and I have to feed her a snack to get her to fall back to sleep. I think she's over tired. Any tips on how I can get her sleeping habits on track would be greatly appreciated.

Q: I homeschool my three children, ages are 8, 6, and 5. The older two have a very poor attitude about doing school, especially math, and the younger one is starting to pick up on it. Their poor attitudes make the lessons take longer and they complain and cry about finishing their assignments. I’ve tried sending them to their rooms until they have a better attitude, but that seems like more of a reward to them because they get to do nothing. They are not working independently yet so I still need to teach them the lessons, but I get so frustrated when they huff and puff and act like school is so hard. They are all working at or slightly above grade level so it isn’t that they don’t understand, they just don’t want to do the work. We do school each morning for about 4 hours, and then they can play the rest of the day. How can I show them they need to have a good attitude about learning?
