Mine go to bed at 8pm pretty much every night. I'm not as strict on it on the weekends. My oldest, who is 8, has been getting up 20 min after I give him kisses, telling me he can't fall asleep. Is it time to back bedtime up to 9pm? Or should I discipline him for being up past bedtime?
The 1st time he got up tonight I sent him straight back to bed. 10 min later he was up again. I had him help me with my chores, let him have a cookie I had just taken out of the oven and then sent him to bed at 9. I'm pretty sure he's down for good now.
He just went thru a growth spurt, jumped from pant sz 8 slim to 10 reg in a matter of a month or 2, and now is getting black heads on his nose. Ugh, what is this? Pre-puberty??
