I am sure most of us unschoolers are familiar with the concept of no bedtime. It has worked extremely well in our house over the last 5 years. But what I want to know is how many of you let your kids wake up when they want? How well does that work? Does it clash with needing to do things in the morning. (We try not to schedule anything until after lunch.) I imagine it might work, just like no bedtime. But at the same time I know how hard it is for me to wake up, even when I am not still tired. I could sleep until after noon every day just because I am comfy. I don't care how late DD stays up, but I DO care how late she sleeps regularly. I'd like her to get in a natural rhythm. Currently she falls asleep around 11 and midnight and I wake her up between 8 and 9 but I'm not sure that is enough sleep for her. She acts tired, but I don't know how much is enough for her body.
