The Safety of Sleepovers: I Dont Trust Other Parents | BlogHer
This headline really caught my eye because I really did not trust other parents with my children…it was something left with me long ago from my grandmother ,who raised me along with my mother. She was so wise. For as long as I remember, I knew this fact and never denied it and rarely argued it.
Bedtime is always a challenge…I truly have never heard so many reasons why it is necessary to get out of bed once the routine is done, the goodnights are said and the lights are out save for the nightlight.

Any other suggestions for keeping kids in bed after the “final good night kiss”.
I hope you have a nice weekend…we are staying close to home and away from the NATO Summit here in Chicago!
