you let your child stay up later?
During weekdays DD(almost 6) goes to bed at 8 and gets up at 6 to get ready for school, We have to get up early because of a move we made and we wanted her to finish the year at her school and switch over summer.
On the weekends she is usually in bed by 8 but I allow her to watch a movie on the tv in her room. The TV doesn't remain in her room. It's a small one that moves around from my room, the craftroom, kitchen and her room.
We don't go out much or do much that would cause her to stay up later but on the rare occasion that she were to be up past her bedtime we still try to get her to bed as soon as we can.
I'm thinking of letting her stay up till 9 or 9:30 over the summer and start pulling the time back to normal before school starts again.
The reason I'm asking is because I know some people who's 4&6 year olds are up till 10 or later on a very regular basis. I just don't know how parents can do that.
