Little man is bback to sleeping badly again. He was up by half past four this morning and is now playing Lego in his bedroom, waiting for morning to start.
I feel so bad making him go back to his room but I cant seem to get it into his head that dark skies mean it’s still bedtime. I’ve had to set up a clock in his room so he can see when he is supposed to be up but even that’s not really working well.
I feel for the little guy, insomnia is awful when your an adult so I cant imagine what it’s like for a child with an overactive imagination. It must be torture being stuck in one room but I’m at a loss as to what to do with him.
It’s been suspected for some time that he has ADHD or some other behavioral issue but the addition now of the inability to sleep really adds weight to the thought. All my research states sleep disturbances as an indicator in ADHD when combined with his other issues, I just hope that the child mental health team picks him up soon and gets on with their work.
I dont want my baby boy to have something wrong with him, but quite clearly he does. I just wish someone would pay attention and help us before he gets much older and it all becomes too much to handle.
