Today’s Ask Nat question:

“I have 4-year-old boy/girl twins that share a bedroom. They use to go to sleep fine but now they talk for hours instead of sleeping. They are exhausted and I am too. No amount of discipline or bribery has worked. We can’t separate them because we don’t have another room. Please help!”
