Every time our great grandson gets punished our granddaughter and grandson have put him in his crib as a time out place.
my husband and I asked her to put him in a chair instead of his crib knowing that he will not go to sleep in it.
what can I do to make her understand this.
it's so frustrating, he sleeps with us most nights.

Hi , just explain to them that putting in the crib is causing him to sleep at the wrong time causing sleep issues. Obviously they do that so they dont have to watch him and now its affecting you at sleep time.
But i do suspect something else is going on as you mention both agree to put him there but only want her to understand.
