Does your teen sleep all day?

Now that school is out. My 15 yr old seems to want to stay up all night and sleep all day. I dont want his schedule messed up. How do I get a 6 ft 175 lb boy out of bed? What would you do. Do you have the same problem?

  • Mine stays up kinda late, but, he was up at 8:30 this morning. He refuses to sleep in and miss anything. He would rather be outside with his friends than sleeping inside. he is 13.

  • My son would sleep till 1:00p.m. or 2:00p.m. that is if he goes to bed at 300a.m. but that is only on weekends. I was told that it is normal for tweens and teens to sleep all day.

  • Mine will crash sometimes. Sleep all day. But not always. Maybe get him into some kind of volunteer work, or see if he can get a part-time job for the summer. I think, for the most part, its kinda normal for them to sleep late. Last year she'd sleep until about 11 or noon.

  • Leave him alone, he will learn his lesson when next school year starts.

  • Is this all that he is planning to do for the next 3 months? It sounds like a recipe for disaster. He can mow lawns, call the Red Cross and become a certified babysitter or get his junior lifeguard certificate and do something productive. He can probably take classes at a junior college that will count for both high school and college credit.
