Well mine listen but don't do it. I kept telling my daughters last night to go to bed. One is in HS and had a half a day today. The other one is in College and had a dr. appt this am.
Now it is 2 o'clock and one is taking a nap b/c she is so tired. LOL. The other one was yawning and yawning at the dr office. I have no sympathy for them.

Your teens don't obey because you don't make them obey. When you tell them to do something you need to follow through. If you aren't going to follow through then don't tell them to do something. If you don't care if they are tired, don't tell them to go to bed. I raised my kids to have responsibility for themselves and they were responsible for getting themselves to bed and getting up as young teens. By the time my children were in college I didn't "tell" them to do anything. College age people are adults.
