My DD sets her own alarm then gets up, gets dressed, eats breakfast, then usually watches Netflix or tv until she wakes me up to drive her to school at 730

She has been getting up by her own alarm since she was 8

get her a cool alarm clock?  maybe that will get her excited?

my kids are morning people...they get up right when their alarm clock goes off.  On Friday nights I take it out of their room in hopes that they'll sleep in...no such luck  LOL  the sun always wakes them up  (that's what my five year old says  lol)

we had no problem at DW being there when the park opened..even though they stayed up later than normal- that's how much morning people they are

If he's not up by 10am I wake him up. He's usually up between 7-9am. He's 6.

Usually around what time? I have no idea what time she gets up, whenever she feels she needs to. She gets me up at 7.
Is it a fight getting them up? No, never once have they been difficult.

Make someone happy today, mind your own business.

My 5 year old gets up at 7. I wake her up. We usually don't have problems. My 4 year old, on the other hand, waking her is like waking a sleeping bear.

The boys wake up with an alarm clock.  I wake up the girl and help her get ready.

They get up around 6:45.

It's not a fight to get them up.  They all know that if they're not ready by the time it's time to go, they go how they are.

My 6 and 3 year old get up between 6 and 6:30. I wake them up. My 3 year old I just open her door and say food and she is up and happy my 6 year old I open his door turn on the light and the fan off and tell him to get up now and he is up. That is really the most effort I put into it. I can tell when they are sick because they will not get up.

Nah, I wake him up a little after 6:30.
No fight. He is 6.

 No. My kids are on a schedule. They are in bed by 8:30 at night, and they are awake, usually on their own, at around 7.  Its great for school days...not so much on the weekends, because none of us ever sleep in.
