My daughter; as a young child, was great at bedtime-stalling. Trying to get her to bed was exhausting for me as she was relentless! I wish I could remember all of the tips/tricks that I used as I was successful most of the times!
Do kids think we’re amateurs or something? Their eyelids hurt? They’ll die of thirst without more water? It’s like a big deja-vu when your own kid starts rattling off the same bedtime excuses you used back in 19-something-or-another. What these little stall-masters don’t understand is that you’re not clueless… you’re just too tired to argue.
Turns out, the bedtime excuses are universal – more than 60% of parents around the globe are dealing with kids’ stall tactics before bed, adding up to nearly 20 minutes every single night. But guess what? It’s time to take back your night with a little help from Netflix.
