  1. When my kids were little I told them to to back to bed or they would have to go to school with the older kids. When they were old enough for school they actually wanted to wake up early because going to school was more fun than watching game shows and soap operas with their mom all day.

  2. “It’s driving me husband and me crazy,” not “my husband and I.” You wouldn’t say, “It’s driving I crazy,” would you?

    Jesus, CNN.

  3. If you ‘boostered’ your child with warper speedest this wint b a problem for long 😂👶😂

  4. 7pm to 5am is 10 hours. putting them to bed at 7pm and expecting them to sleep even longer sounds pretty dumb.

    1. Thank you! I came here to say this. Baffling. If you want your kid to sleep until 7 uhhhh try putting them to bed at 9??? The only reason crazy early bedtimes exist I think is so adults can pretend they don’t have kids for several hours every night. Then they complain when their kids get up at the crack of dawn.

    2. I have to agree so far. Bed time for our little one is around 10PM and she is now waking up around 8AM for a morning bottle, then sometimes is up for the day, other days wants to sleep for another couple hours, works great for us!

    3. I’ve raised 7 kids.
      4 girls 3 boys.
      Before they were 5 years old our routine was 7 pm to 7 am.
      When school started it was 8pm to 7am.
      In the 5th grade they stayed up until 8:30 pm.
      Middle School was 9pm.

      Pediatricians will also recommend 10-12 hours of sleep for children.
      No big deal.

  5. I have never had this issue, not even when I worked 3rd shift. Stop following all the rules and think outside the box.

  6. You may not know me, but I know everything about you (Psalm 139:1). I know when you sit down and when you rise up (Psalm 139:2). I am familiar with all of your ways (Psalm 139:3). Even the very hairs on your head are numbered (Matthew 10:29-31). For you were made in my image (Genesis 1:27). In me you live and move and have your being (Acts 17:28). For you are my offspring (Acts 17:28). I knew you even before you were conceived (Jeremiah 1:4-5). I chose you when I planned creation (Ephesians 1:11-12). You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book (Psalm 139:15-16). I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live (Acts 17:26). You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). I knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13) and brought you forth on the day that you were born (Psalm 71:6). I have been misrepresented by those who don’t know me (John 8:41-44). I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love (1 John 4:16). And it is my desire to lavish my love on you (1 John 3:1) simply because you are my child and I am your Father (1 John 3:1). I offer you more than your earthly father ever could (Matthew 7:11). I am the perfect Father (Matthew 5:48). Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand (James 1:17). For I am your provider and I meet all of your needs (Matthew 6:31-33). My plan for your future has always been filled with hope (Jeremiah 29:11) because I love you with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3). My thoughts towards you are countless as the sand on the seashore (Psalm 139:17-18). I rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17). I will never stop doing good to you (Jeremiah 32:40). For you are my treasured possession (Exodus 19:5). I desire to establish you with all of my heart and all of my soul (Jeremiah 32:41) and I want to show you great and marvelous things (Jeremiah 33:3). If you seek me with all of your heart, you will find me (Deuteronomy 4:29). Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4). For it is I who gave you those desires (Philippians 2:13). I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine (Ephesians 3:20). For I am your greatest encourager (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17). I am also the Father who comforts you in all of your troubles (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). When you are brokenhearted, I am close to you (Psalm 34:18). As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart (Isaiah 40:11). I will wipe away every tear from your eyes (Revelation 21:3-4) and I will take away all of the pain you have suffered on this earth (Revelation 21:3-4). I am your Father, and I love you (John 17:23). My love for you is revealed in Jesus (John 17:26). I am for you, not against you (Romans 8:31). He died so that you and I could be reconciled (2 Corinthians 5:18-19). He died so that righteousness could live in and through you (2 Corinthians 5:21) as well as to take away your sins (John 8:36). I do this by putting my spirit within you and through my spirit, you live righteously (Ezekiel 11:19-21). Jesus’ death was the ultimate expression of my love for you (1 John 4:10). I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love (Romans 8:31-32). If you receive the gift of my Son Jesus, you receive me (1 John 2:23). No one and nothing can separate you from me, as long as you abide in me (Romans 8:38-39). A huge party is thrown in Heaven for each one of you who repents for your sins and believes in me (Luke 15:7). I am your Father (Ephesians 3:14-15). My question is… Will you be my child (John 1:12-13)? I’m waiting for you (Luke 15:11-32).
    Believe in Jesus, study and believe His Word – the New Testament, and be baptized (Matthew 28:18-20, John 5:24). 🤓

  7. my kids had a routine of 8-8:30 bedtime; however i was either home or worked 11a-7:30p, so we slept til 9a. i never had problems with this Thank God!!! but dinner, bath, bedtime was very routine. actually most of our daily lives are routine, i think that is key especially with children. when life is scattered & they never know what’s happening when it creates a chaos like the doctor was saying. we adults have stressful lives but if we can try to keep our kids calmer & regular so they know what to expect it really makes a difference. i’m older now, gma of 5 🤦‍♀️ but my girls followed the same pattern with their children & haven’t had issues either. so either we are extremely lucky or routines are key 😊

    1. Agreed. We have 3 boys, aged 8,5, and 2.
      Routines are key to their sleep, moods, and just general efficiency.

  8. Thank the Lord I don’t have kids and I don’t want any either😂 but it is interesting though that they get up this early I thought only babies do that

  9. Never let your kids around ANY CNN employees!!! UGH!! It’s like a work place for those on Megan’s list!

  10. Soooo you putting the kids to bed at 7 and wanting them to sleep to 7 🤦🏿
    People are really expecting their kids to sleep for 12 hours… And to be honest 7 is way to early imo🤷🏾‍♂️

  11. I think the older boy is going to be mortified later in life to see video of him drinking from a baby bottle at his age.
    Also I’m not sure sleeping half of the day (12 hours) is reasonable. At least not in one stretch. That’s why small kids take naps. Neither are infants.
    Also less screen time for small minds helps..starting with family meals.

  12. Needed to see this.
    Going to look at these concepts, i think qlot of us parents deal with the bedtime struggle.
