    I agree. Don't take that time away.
    Can you change the time you have the one on one with her?

    My DD loves Masterchef, but is sometimes too tired to watch it.

    You can watch it on Tenplay. I would use that as currency!
    I could try that actually! I do need to follow through whatever the consequence though. I have told her she's not allowed to play club penguin on the weekend for her hour of ipad but I always cave.

    I've thought about other times but really it's not so easy. I have a 7 year old, a 4 year old and a 13 week old. My time is fairly limited!

    My eldest is also 9 and she goes to bed at 8pm as does my DS who is 7. Sometimes he is tired earlier and goes to bed at 7:30pm.
    Luckily I have no problems whatsoever with them going to bed when they are supposed to.
    I if it was either of my two I would take Something off them that they like doing, for example take away PlayStation time for DS which is minimal on the weekend anyways. Or do a star/sticker chart and they get a reward after so many stickers give them a reward.

    I wish a sticker chart would work! It gives me an Idea though, I could take away a portion of her canteen money for the week.

    Could you change that around....if she goes to bed in whatever manner you are after she earns time?

    I don't limit screen time. But... I do use no devices as a consequence for both children.

    Does she listen to you? This is what I do with varying success but I'm on my own a lot with my three and I NEED alone time in the evening. I ended up having to say to my oldest that we would pick a ten minute, twenty minute or thirty minute option of mum time. Week days it had to be ten minutes - so little beauty session ect..
    I told her that mum needs her alone time too.

    If it was me I wouldn't give my child any canteen money unless they had done as they were supposed to for the whole week.
    Go to bed when you're supposed to all week and you get canteen money on Friday. Don't go when you're supposed to even if it's just one night and no money is given for Friday.

    I absolutely struggle with her listening to me. One night I told her to go to her room at 8.30 because I told her I needed my own time. She literally sat near her door with the light off watching me from her room. I don't think she intended on making me feel guilty but I feel like she can be so manipulative sometimes!
