My child whom is 5, has to be at school no later than 7:35am. My child is not a morning person regardless of how many hours of sleep she gets. Last year in Pre-k I tried to have her in bed by 9:00 or 9:30, she was always hard to wake up in the morning just as she is now going to bed at 8:00 and she is asleep by 8:15-8:30. She does very well in school and doesn't misbehave. But I feel like I'm putting her to sleep way to early even though she is completely asleep by 8:30. I don't get off work until 5:00 and by the time we all get home it's 6:00, which only leaves two hours for some outside play, supper, bathtub, reading a book in then bed. Can anyone offer any advise. I just feel so rushed and I don't feel like we are able to spend good family time within 2 hours... Anyone have the same problem?
