I have always wondered why some parents will put their children down for bed at 6 or 7 pm. If the sun is still up, I think it's a bit too early for bedtime. What irks me most though, is that it is these same parents who complain that their child wakes them up too early in the morning! Wonder why! Sometimes I feel parents are too eager to have "grown up time" that they rush the kids to bed before they are ready. I know parents who don't get home until around 6:30 - 7:00 and all they get is dinner, bath, and bed. There is no playtime, no family time, nothing. Then the child is up at 4:30am and mom is cranky. I just don't understand the logic.
