Kristen Bell reveals 'controversial' bedtime method she uses to get her 3-year-old to sleep

Not one to shy away from more, lets just say, experimental parenting techniques, Kristen Bell has revealed the 'controversial' bedtime method she uses to get her daughter to sleep.

Speaking at the premiere of the film Pandas, for which she is the narrator of, the 37-year-old Frozen star revealed that she now locks her daughter in her room, in a bid to get her to sleep.

"Look, I'll get controversial. My 3-year-old [Delta] decided to stop sleeping about nine months ago."

"And every night, when we put her to bed, she turns the lights on, which annoys the 4-year-old [Lincoln], and she will move furniture, and she bangs on the door with different, hard toys."

We switched the door knob. We turned the lock on the outside. I'm sorry, I know that's controversial, but we lock it when she gets in there, and we stand outside and say, "We love you, we will talk to you in the morning, but now, it's time for sleep.


"And after about 10 minutes, she'll wind herself down. And then, before we go to bed, obviously, we unlock it."

What do you think? Would you try it?
