What this is about is the biology of teens. The biology of growing into adults.

When little kids go to bed and get up at ungodly hours, it is because they go to bed early, lets say, directly after dinner and a bath, say 7.00 pm and sleep through to 6 am. They have a lot of growing to do. Well so do teens, especially the boys according to these recent “discoveries”. They have to grow into big men. Apparently, it only lasts a few years and then normal sleeping hours apply, like the old 8 hrs a night is fine to get by on.

I don’t know about American children but when I was going back to high school in the early 1990’s before attending college, I had far, far too much homework to do. I did it and loved it but then that was what I wanted to do in the first place. But I thought at the time, “OMG, this is too much work for kids.”

You probably can’t uniform and blanket this problem into a real solution other than to be aware there is a problem of lack of sleep.

One thing about my son was when I said, “Go to bed Kane’…he went straight away. Any visitors were totally shocked that he obeyed me straight away with no arguments EVER at all.

When he and I were living by ourselves before I married Kurt, Kane would stay up twice a week and watch “Prisoner” with me in my warm, water bed. I feel I did the right thing NOT enforcing a strict bedtime. He went to bed 5 nights at 8:30 no arguments and twice stayed up for an extra hour on “Prisoner” hour….[Cell Block H].

I love sleeping and so did Kane. That is where I dream. My grandmother would always talk about dreams and dreaming when we were growing up so sleeping wasn’t this chore everyone had to do but rather something fun to look forward to. She used to say it was her second life and in actual fact, it is everyone’s second life. There you go, we get two lives for the price of one, don’t we?..lol

I have cured many parents children of their sleeping problems by relating that very subject to them. At least that is one area I can assist in…lol
