My 11 almost 12 year old is fight every second he has to go t bed. He thinks he knows it all and argues over every little thing. Even when I researched on line an showed him the resulte that he should be sleeping at least 10-11 hours he argues the web sites that they are wrong. They know nothing and he only needs 7 hours off sleep. I am trying very hard to put my foot down, but am excausted from doing it every night. I give him freedom in the morning t have some peace and quiet time. He is not a morning person at all. He is getting up at 6.30 am and I want him in bed by 8.30pm Go to read at 8pm and lights out by 8.30pm. I could be more convinced, if he wants to read, but all he wants to do is watch TV. It is such a power struggle. I am tired of it.
