The neighbor kid has been driving me nuts. She wants to play with my daughter but she comes over at the worst times. She asked me why my children go to bed so early and I asked her why she wasn't getting ready for bed. She looked at my like I was crazy and said she didn't have to go to bed until ten. She is ten years old and in school. My kids are homeschooled and my oldest is five. We get them ready for bed starting at seven and by seven thirty they have had their stories and are tucked in. The earliest any of them wake up is seven.
Don't ten year old still need a lot of sleep? The neighbor gets on the bus at seven thirty so shouldn't she be going to be at the same time my children are? Why is she knocking on my door at seven or eight o'clock at night?! Am I crazy, I would think that a ten year old should be allotted at least ten hours of sleep per night!
