Get out of bed!

Dear Daughter,

I realize it's summer and you don't have a schedule to follow, but that doesn't mean it's ok to sleep in until noon and stay up all night.

Get up, work on a puzzle, read a book, go to the pool.... do something besides lay in bed all day!

Love, 
Mom

My son had to set his alarm ten am and bedtime is eleven. He's 14 yrs old. He has two " do nothing" days a week and he has to do chores or help with my his lil bro with the things I can't help with, such as: climbing through the tubes, play with him in the bounce place and such.

If he's gonna mellow out here...he can do extra chores for me. Two " do nothing days" is plenty.

Good luck. Take the laptop and / or phone and away when you lay down along with the tv cord or remotes. If she's gonna stay up, make it boring and crap.

Mine does that every day that she doesn't have to get up. Drives me insane. If I can't sleep in, why should she?

Mine reads all night. She complains when I make her do something because 'but mum! I'm up to this really great bit!' Lol

haha - right now she's torn between finishing a book, being on her laptop or calling this girl she knows and going to her place. She can't decide at all Xd

If my kids wanted to spend all night reading, that was on them.  We never allowed 'puters, TV's, video games, etc in their rooms.  They got up when I did, summer or winter, school or not.  Ther had chores, and jobs, beginning with daytime babysitting when they were 12. 

The only way your kid can sleep till noon, and do nothing all day, is if you ALLOW it.
