Bedtime is 8pm in our house. It has been that way for at least the last three years. But my oldest daughter insists on staying up late. She usually isn't asleep before 10pm. But she has to get up at 7am to get ready for school. Every morning it is the same thing. I have to yell at her to get up. She misses breakfast most morning because she lays in bed until 7:30 and then still has to get dressed and brush her teeth before going out to the bust stop at 7:50. I don't know what to do. She has missed the bus 3 times since school has started. Luckily my husband is home in the mornings right now so I could drive her to school but he might go back to mornings so we wouldn't have the car. That means everytime she misses the bus she misses school, too.
