My kids are a sleep wake them up or no?

It is 630 here and my 6 year and 3 year old just fell asleep on the couch there bedtime is 830 I am afraid they will be up all night, but then again I dread waking them cause my kids are so grumpy when they get woke up especially my 3 year old she will cry for like an hour if you wake her

  • Will they now be up at 4 am because they fell asleep early?

  • are they easily transported? My Dd will sleep through a tornado, so i know i could pick her up & put her in bed. Could you do that? Would they go back to sleep if they woke up?

    Gosh, i remember that happening....so frustrating!

  • Let them sleep for for 15 minutes, then wake them. You really don't want a 10:45 bedtime, do you?

  • I'd let them sleep. Get their beds all ready for them and when the house is dark and quiet put them in their beds. Good Luck

    my 6 year old wakes up very easily. Soon as you open her bedroom door to check on them in the middle of the night she would wake up. My 3 year old use to be like that, but not anymore so she is easily transported lol

  • they just fell asleep? If so I would move them to their beds. If not I would wake them up with a movie or some music and ask if they want a snack or dinner.

    shoot my 6 year old goes to bed pretty easy since she is in kindergarden and loves bedtime now because she can't wait to go to school in the morning lol (on spring break now), but my 3 year old I have a heck of a time going to bed at night I am lucky to get her to fall asleep before 10 or 11
