DS has started waking up before me most mornings and helping himself to food and the TV. He is only 6 and knows that this is unacceptable. He is not allowed to watch TV until chores are done and they get done after school. He also knows that he is not to just help himself to whatever he finds in the kitchen. I have told him numerous times to wake me up as soon as he gets up, but he refuses. I don't want to have to sleep on the couch or set my alarm to wake up at 4am just to catch him before he starts, but I don't know what else to do. I caught him again this morning and grounded him for 2 days from the TV in the eveings. Oh and he is just bold face lying to me and thinking I will believe him! He tells me that he wasn't watching TV. The darn thing is on!!! I don't want to put an alarm on the door because then that wakes everyone else up and that isn't fair. He sees his therapist today so I will be talking to him about it, but thought maybe you ladies would have some suggestions.
