Most parents put their kids on bed by 8 or 9 pm excluding us and my other friend in Wisconsin. Me and hubby, decided not to take our little one on bed by those time, since he isn’t in school yet so what’s the hurry to get them to bed? We have experienced from our bundle the time, we spend in the bedroom with him, doing nothing, waiting for him to fall asleep, which takes everlastingly to happen.
I didn’t say it is wrong to let them doze by earlier, it would be great for them especially when they start schooling, so they could have enough sleep and be energetic when they are in school. Even so, letting them stay longer to wear out their energy is another thing you can do too. Except that they will be awake late at night. The effect of that is, they’ll wake up later in the morning too, which gives you more chores to be done with no disruption.
Since our son reached two we were certain not to oblige him to bed by those early hours. As long as he is not whiney he can stay late but not very late. At least we could have more fun with him even more while everyone is ready for a good night sleep.
So today, I have an adequate time to write more articles in both blogs. Done some task that I was given, and at least get things ready before him to wake up.
