  • They almost always get up on their own - it's rare we have to wake them up unless we have to get them up earlier than normal. We just bought an alarm clock for the older two, who are 7 & 8.5 - but it's not for waking them up, it's for keeping them from waking everyone before a certain time (7yo likes to get up at 6-6:30 and wake everyone up, grrrrr).

  • my dd always wakes up on her own, sometimes even before I do, but she's only 2 so she won't need an alarm clock for a while

  • My son is always up on his own in the morning. I put him to bed early enough that I know he will wake up organically. I feel when a child is so tired still that theyhave to be woken up, that they are not getting enough sleep.
