Every night when we say it is bedtime, our 15 year old gets frustrated. We start hearing the following:
“My friends get to stay up later.”
“Why are you treating me like a baby?”
“I can’t believe you are making me go to bed. It is only 9:30.”
I know the importance of sleep for kids his age, for him in particular. Doing what I feel is right for him is causing us issues. I want what is best for him, and for our relationship. Any thoughts on how we can strike a balance?
