Kids never want to go to bed, they may miss all the fun after all. It is even worse during the summer months when the sun is up late. You use every argument in your arsenal to defeat their logic including “see the moon is up.”
Taking my two youngest into school on monday, the five year old yells out “oh no we have to go to bed!” I calmly asked why and he pointed to the moon in the morning sky and said “because the moon is out” and he began to giggle. Well played little one, well played.
