My 17 year old is at my feet in our bedroom. My husband is waiting for her to go to bed so we can do our thing.
It never ends.
Tell her that she can stay up, as long as she stays in her room. If she comes out, she will not get to do (whatever fun thing she normally does during the day).
My kids often stay up past their bedtimes, but they stay in their rooms, so it's OK.
She could be over tired now. Just keep putting her back to bed w/o saying a word. She will get the hint it is bedtime. My 6 yr old is still up but it is only 8pm here.
