She is in full blown puberty, and this summer her sleep patterns are completely off. She is up all night even after I make sure she is in bed. Then the child wants to sleep all day. She is a complete mess...moody, short tempered...I wonder why....and my efforts to keep her up all day just make for a very long day for me. then guess what, she isn't tired and up all night she goes. Im not sleepy.. that is what she says. Alot of her friends have no bedtime at all during the summer, which I think is a mistake, but her lack of sleep or sleeping during the day accompanied by her moodiness and general oscar the grouch syndrome is disruptive to our home. Anyone else have this problem and what did you do to address it?
