What do you do with a kid who wants to stay up all night reading?!?
At first it was just a few minutes after "bed time" but over the summer it's evolved into LONG stretches of time and we're having a harder and harder time getting him to stop reading and go to sleep! We finish our bed time routine at about 8:00 and it's often well after nine before he actually goes to sleep. Every time we tell him it's time for lights out he says something like "I'm at such an exciting part! I can't stop now!"
I know in many ways this is a great problem to have and I obviously don't want to do anything to squelch this new passion of his. But as the new school year approaches, I'm also worried about him getting a good night's sleep!
My husband thinks we should just pretend we don't know and let him burn the midnight oil for as long as he wants to. I feel like that's going to hurt him in other ways.
What do you think?
