My SS, who is 9, doesn't have a bedtime and when DH tells him it's bedtime, he is allowed to play on his ipod touch or goes to sleep with the TV on. I think this is unhealthy but I'm not sure on how to handle it because I am the stepmom.Answer Question

Learning to fall asleep alone is an important step in a child's emotional development. Children should not fall asleep with the TV on or playing with an ipod. You are right to feel that your stepson needs a regular bedtime. Children need routines to do their best in school. It makes them feel secure. Would your husband be willing to attend a parenting class?
