Should I just put my son to bed?

It's 7pm and my 4 year old is getting cranky. I planned to just wing it and see how long he would last but should I just go ahead and put him to bed? I just wish he could throw confetti with us. I tried to give him a late nap so he'd stay up but he didn't sleep long. WWYD?

  • I'd go ahead and put him to bed. 4 is still pretty young to last til the ball drops. Neither of my kids wound up staying up til til they were 6-7.

  • No doubt, I'd put him to bed. It's only quarter after 9 and I'm surprised mine are still up.

  • Mine is 5 and she went to bed a little before 9, which was late for her.

  • Bed. Mine are 8 and 9 and still can't stay up.

  • I put my 4 yo to bed at normal time. My older ones didn't last until midnight until they were around 10.

  • I put mine to bed at the regular time but they want me to wake them up at midnight.
