I love your book, and have really gained a lot from your tips and advice. My husband and I are constantly reminding one another to be playful when things are stressful and it always works. But what about at bedtime? We struggle many evenings with an overtired toddler who just won't nap and then it is a major struggle to get her to bed. How or should we use playful parenting at these times. I worry it would just rile her up more and make bedtime even more stressful. But I am very concerned that we are creating a really negative attitude around bedtime with our constant struggles. We are working on stopping the overtired cycle but she refuses to nap and has a 5mo. old brother. It seems like 5pm is when she should be going to bed but then she thinks it's a nap and is up at 8 or 9 ready for a full day of play.
