  • occasionally this might be okay.  If it something that happens every night then maybe not.  I also guess it depends on how late they sleep during the day.  if they are going to bed at 3 am and sleeping until 3pm the next day, then maybe.

    It is not something I would choose to do with my children!

  • whatever fits your schedule... we are night owls here, my 5yr old twins are still up, we homeschool so that helps, lol

  • I allow my daughter to stay up late on nights she doesn't have school the next day. It works for me because I can study late and we both wake up pretty late in the day. My 4 year old literally just passed out!

  • As long as they are getting enough sleep, I guess it's whatever works for the family. It may be a hard transition when they go to school, if they do.

  • We have a schedule at my house. She is in bed between 8:30 and 9 on the weekdays. On the weekends maybe a little later,depending on what we are doing.
