I watch my kids every night wanting to do it and even trying to stay up later but the bottom line is they are not supposed to do it and therefore they don’t do it. My wife and I make sure they don’t stay up too late. Now, on the other side of this coin, I also notice that most nights my wife and I want to, and even try, to go to bed earlier, but we shouldn’t because of all the things we still have to do as parents. In the end, we don’t get what we want either, which is to go to bed earlier. Ironically, both the older and the younger pursue opposite needs, and neither usually gets what he wants. This is life. So, let’s put them to bed, okay?

However, some children are not put to bed by their parents and end up exhausted during the day at school. These are the kids with their heads down at their desks. Unfortunately, their grades are low and school is not a place they like because their teachers keep trying to wake them up when all they really want is to go back to sleep.

To my tired students I tell them that they must force themselves to get up early and then force themselves to work hard all day at school and at home so that sleep is not so difficult at night, but rather easier so they can be better. remained. I feel like this is great advice for our children who stay up very late, but I also know that our children are still just children and still need our help. So to that point, parents, please join me in calling out loud and clear to all children to listen… BEDTIME!

Now, as my grandfather always said, “Go learn, lead, and pave the way to a better world for all of us.” Let’s remember that our children’s youth will make them want to stay up later, and our years in this game combined with wisdom should persuade us to put them to bed. So let’s make them go to bed! And once again parents, thank you in advance for all you do and will do…
