My 10 year old daughter goes to bed around 1:00 AM and I can't get her to go to sleep earlier. She does get up for school but often doesn't have a lot of time in the morning. She stays up using electronics. I take them away and find them back in her room when she's at school. I have used all possible hiding spots, but to no avail.She is a bright soon to be 7th grader and is usually very reasonable. She says she thinks she has a genetic mutation that causes her to need less sleep. I looked it up but it doesn't say how old the people tested on were. She wants to experiment on herself by staying up late. What can I do? She doesn't seem tired, but a few times at three I wake up to her in the kitchen having a snack.What can I do/say to get her to go to bed? Also, what are some good bedtimes for 10-12 year olds?
