    I was watching a doco on sleep a couple of months ago. Apparently it's totally normal for teenagers to find it hard to wake in the mornings

    I didn't have a bedtime (or much discpline) from 14-15.. I totally flunked High School

    I'm not there yet so I can't say, but in a lot of ways I will be trying to be both closer to, and stricter on my kids at that age on bedtimes, schooling, and who I want them running off with on weekends

    This may sound overbearing but only want the best for them, so they are just going to have to accept that I wont allow them to get into the habit of doing whatever and not thinking ahead, only because thats exactly what I did of course, and now Im struggling.. If I had of had more rules and maybe a more mature attitude as a teen I could have been a uni graduate with my foot well and truly into a career by now

    Bedtimes I think just play it by ear, if they are allowed to stay up late and you notice it is affecting them, change it But personally I think all kids in school need sleep and may not be mature minded enough yet to believe so themselves

    We are guardians of a 15 year old and she is sent to bed at 9.30 on school nights. I think they should have bed times until they finish school.
