Ss is 6 and in first grade. DH insists that 9 is plenty early.
Ss is horrible after school. He cries over bath time, bed time, dinner time, etc. And when he's not crying he's a total Zombie.
He NEEDS more sleep. I have to have him up by 6:45 to have him to school on time. (7:30 We live 15 minutes away.).
I have tried waking up SD, getting her ready, then waking up SS and getting him ready. But, that only gives him an extra 10-15 minutes sleep in the mornings.
DH and i get the kids wed-sun every week. SS is in bed by 8 at moms, and still tired after school but not nearly as bad. DH doesn't want him in bed earlier because DS says he wants to stay up, and DH wants "time."
BUT DH is always watching TV, or snoozing himself, or playing on his phone. It's not like HE is using the "time" himself. It's always me that spends time with the kids actually caring for and giving them attention.
Please help me finally win this argument for SS sake. He NEEDS to go to bed earlier.
DH other reason is because he says its not fair to SD to make her go to bed that early. SD is in 4th grade, she deserves a later bed time than a 6 year old! I agree on that, but why not just let her stay up 1/2 an hour later? Because DH insists on them having the exact sane everything even though they are 2 different people!
