Should he eat dinner or candy? Let him decide.
Most kids I know, including my son, will pig out on snack foods and candy instead of healthy foods. If yo don't believe me, find any kid you know and offer them green vegetables in one bowl and M&M's in another bowl. See which bowl gets emptied first. I thought so.
Five year olds need 10-12 hours per night.
Children thrive on predictability and consistency. That, and a good night's sleep is what I am trying to provide for both of my kids.
What a wonderful approach to raising children
First of all, I don't see any inconsistencies is what I am saying.
The predictability, consistency and good night's sleep are good for our child.
The differences you mention do not have to do with what is good for the adult. It is insulting to suggest that.
Children need to learn to go to sleep at a normal hour so they can get up for school. Do you consider school to be for the adult or for child?
