Am I a mean mum?
I was having a conversation the other day with a mum at the school who thought i was a bit of a mean mum as i put my girls to bed at 7pm every night. Where as I happen to think they're wrong to be leaving their kids up til all hours,past 10pm sometimes. What do you think?
My girls are aged 4 and 8 years old and have always had a set bedtime of 7pm on a school night. Yes they may mess about for an hour or so,as most kids will but they are normaly asleep by 8pm and then fresh and ready to get up about 7:30am. I believe my kids are much happier after having a good nights sleep. If my kids were getting up at 5am cus they were'nt tired then yes i would think about letting them stay up a little later but for now,they seem quite happy. Do you think i'm being mean?
I think letting kids stay up til they say they wanna go bed isn't the way it should be, were in charge , not them! How is a child supposed to do well at school when they've had very little sleep and go to school tired?
I understand that everyone has different ways of bringing up their kids but surely kids need a good nights sleep. What time do you put your children too bed??
Sorry for the Rant but it really annoyed me so i thought why not get it off my chest and ask you lot,what you think. Please feel free to leave a comment,i won't bite, Promise x
