Do you let your older kids ......

Do you let you older kids bring a drink to bed with them..... If so do you make them get water or something else? I allow mine to take a cup og water or milk to bed, but they always want something else.

  • The bathroom is between their bedrooms. If they want a drink of water, they get it there.

  • I let each of mine keep a small cup in their bathroom. If they need a drink, they can go in there and take a sip and then go back to sleep.

  • Absolutly not. no food or drink is allowed up stairs where the bed rooms are. I wouldn't want bugs to be in their rooms. (don't have any, just VERY paranoid.)

  • Not unless they are sick. No food or drinks allowed in any bedrooms. if they are sick I'll get them a cup with a lip with water or ginger ale.

  • water or apple juice

  • No. They aren't allowed any food or drink outside of the kitchen. Even when they're watching TV in one of the living rooms their cups have to stay in the kitchen. If they are thirsty they get up and get a drink then go back to what they are doing. They only drink water in the house.
