You want to know how to get your child to go to bed immediately, listen to this:
(on our way home)
Mom: When we get home, I want to immediately take a shower and get to bed.
Kid: But mom, I wanna play and watch my show before I go to bed.
Mom: Hey I got your report card in the mail and I had a meeting with your teachers today, I want to talk to you about some of the things we discussed, I’m not too happy with the report.
(two min later)
Kid: Mom, I’m so tired, when I get home can I go right to bed. I don’t think I’m going to get enough sleep and I don’t want to be cranky in the morning.
