Children and bedtime

Sunday night, 10:30, and the phone rings.  “Hello” the voice says, “is Lily there?”  My brain says “What!?!”  It turns out it is one of the students from my school and yes she actually wanted to talk to Lily.  I was so taken off guard but I managed to tell her Lily had long been in bed and to ask her to please not call me at home any more.  I was worried this might be the start of something but we have gotten no further calls since then.  So all is okay.  Except, I am still wondering why there are children up and about so late into the night!!


  1. Ha! If you stay long enough, you'll start to consider 10:30 early and be glad they at least called before the grown-ups went to bed... kids stay up insanely late in Nunavut, even on school nights, especially during the light season.

  2. children’s bedtime routine is essential for proper development.
    Child psychologists agree that children’s bedtime routine is essential for proper development.
    A children’s bedtime routine helps the child get over the excitement of the day and be better prepared for sleeping.
    Children who are hyperactive and who refuse to go to bed on time benefit from having a proper children’s bedtime routine.
    Each family has to decide about the children’s bedtime routinethat suits its specific requirements.
    The most common elements of a children’s bedtime routine are a warm bath after dinner followed by a story.
    A children’s bedtime routine is also a great way for the kid to bond with parents because this is when they can communicate about different things in a peaceful environment.
