My son is such a night owl! Like me, he will stay up as long as you let him and sleep later (as long as his sister doesn't wake him up, she's up with the sun no matter what she goes to bed). He normally doesn't fight me to get up in the mornings and is usually in bed by 8:30, sometimes 9. Here lately I've been having to unplug his tv so he's not up all night watching movies! Dh works nights so when he picks them up from school, they all come home and take naps. I don't have a problem with that because I know he needs to sleep and I prefer they sleep when he does.
We've been very lucky with our kids, if they get up in the mornings and don't wake us up, they go get cereal and turn on the tv until we get up.
They don't go outside, don't mess with anything, won't open the door for people. I just wish she would sleep later like he does! Are your kids night owls or do they get up at the crack of dawn??
