Waking Up

I am so "old school" when it comes to raising kids. I feel that everyone is against me. Has the world gone mad? Since when is it okay to let teenagers do whatever they want?

Either I'm getting really old or are teenagers just lazier then what I remember?

My step son John moved in with us 2 years ago. Tomorrow he leaves for boot camp. I wonder how they will get him out of bed in the morning? They should offer webcams for parents at boot camp.

Sara and Eli doing their best to wake up their brother.

How do you get a teenager out of bed? What time is reasonable for them to wake up?

Well, our local high school started at 7:20 a.m. My daughters had to get up early every day...

I have a almost teenager that can't get out of bed either...

How about a LOUD alarm clock?

I always slept late as a teenager. I think they really do need a lot of extra sleep for all the growing that's happening during that time. Those pots and pans are too funny.
