i put my 5 year old to sleep at 7:30 and she actually wakes up either when i get her up at 7:30 in the morning, or sometimes a bit earlier. She has a long day at school, and does not take a nap at all during the day, so by the time the nighttime comes and she finishes everything that has to be done, she falls asleep at around 7:30 every night. my 9 year falls asleep a lot later because of way too much hw that the school gives her. She wakes up with no problem though, thank God

Try to get them to bed later. My kids goes in at 8 or 8:30 and are up at 6am. which is perfect time.

I put a clock in each kids room and they know they are not to leave the room until a "7" is the first number. If they are up before this they play quietly in their rooms or look at books.

Try this.. I am a mother of 2 boys one is 6yrs old and the other is a yr old.. Put ur 7&4yr old down at different times..

Try putting the 4 yr old down at lets say 7-730pm and then your 7yr old down at 8-830pm.

I put my one yr old down at 7-730pm and he wakes up at 730-8am and my 6yr old he gets up at 7-730am..

I use to have the same problem with my 6 yr old.. I use to put him to bed at 7pm and I tell ya every morning he would get up at 4am and stay up the whole day and still go to bed at 7pm every night... I don't know how he would do it.. I alway told him to stay in his room and go back to bed but he never would... It would drain me out cuz he would come in my room and wake me up and then I would have to get up... I was beat by the middle of the day!! also put a clock in their room and tell them that when its eg 7:00am they can come out of their room and get u... Post it on the wall too on paper by the clock so they know wat time they r able to leave the room... That may help as well..

I would definitely be keeping them up a little bit later. That should help. It may be hard at first to get them on the new schedule, but you can do it.

Another option depending on how old your daughters are is to have a preset "okay" things to do when they get up that doesn't envolve waking you up. Things like reading, a movie that you aprove of, practicing someting for school. Also have breakfast food that they can fix and eat with out your help. then you get the sleep that you need and they get to keep the schedule that makes them happy.

Have them go to bed later, that way they will sleep in later. Depending on their age, have them go to bed at 830 or 9 pm.

you have to keep them moving say you get home at 6 by 6:30 you know they are going to be asleep or on the home you know they will bw asleep so you tell them lets go out to the park or just get them out of the house walking around the block anything like that by keeping them moving you dont give them or thier body a chance to get tired yet

I had the same problem. My now six year old used to wake up @ 5:00 or 5:30 am like clock work. Their bedtime is 8:30. If it was not time for us to be up I needed all the rest I could get. I was working 2 jobs at that time so it drove me crazy. Give them a small snack like a granola bar and something to drink and put them back to bed until its time to get up. It worked for me. I hope it helps and you can get some rest. It won't last long....
