In the summer, do you wake your kids in the morning or do you let them wake up on their own?  What if they didn't wake on their own by 11:00?

My older son is in camp so we do have to get up.

When we have nothing to do I let them sleep in. But the latest they sleep is 7:30 so it doesn't really matter.

I let my kids wake up on their own in the summer. I let them sleep as late as they want.  I wouldn't have a problem if they woke up after 11:00.

My youngest just rolled out of bed a minute or two ago.  He obviously needed the sleep.

I let them sleep as late as they want unless we have somewhere to be.  I also let them stay up a lot later than school bedtime.  About two weeks before school starts we start getting closer to the school routine to get their bodies used to it, for a full week we do bedtime an hour later than school bedtime and I make them wake up an hour later than I would wake them up for school and the last week before school starts we do school bedtime and as close as I am willing to wake up to a school morning ;)

I have not come across an 11 sleep in as long as they were going to bed at night when I asked them to and we didn't have anywhere to be I have no problem sleeping until 11 or later.

Unless we have to be somewhere, I let them sleep. They are usually up between 7 and 9. Ds and I did sleep until almost 11 one day but we had to be up at 5:50 to take my sister to work so we laid back down.

I let them wake up on their own.  They're both usually up by 7:00-7:30 unless they're sick.

No, I let them sleep. All of their activities start in the afternoon anyway.

I don't wake my kids they wake me up around 6 every morning.  If I get to sleep till 11 I am lucky.  My kids don't know what sleeping in means :(

I am NOT a morning person and honestly feel sorry for anyone whose children wake them at an ungodly hour on days that you could have slept in.  Even 6:45 on school mornings is way too early for me. lol
