My son is 7 (well, he will be in 4 days). He goes to bed between 7:30 and 8:00 every night and has to get up at 7:00 to go to school. A lot of the time, it takes him a long time to get to sleep, and he keeps coming down with excuses like he needs to pee or he heard a noise. He has a globe as a nightlight that is very dim, and we have a blackout shade on the window so light is not the issue. He was complaining that noises in the distance were keeping him from falling asleep, but a radio turned on very softly to a classical station has solved that. Is he going to bed too early? Lots of the other kids in the area are up much later but they still have to get up for school and I can't imagine they're getting enough sleep. What time do your kids go to bed?
Thanks in advance!
