Do you find that when it is time for the kids to go to bed the kids come up with a million and one reasons why they can’t go to bed yet? All three of my boys are bedtime stallers. It doesn’t matter if it is a school night or the weekend when I tell them it’s time to go brush their teeth and get ready for bed they start in on the excuses. Finally, once I get them all settled in bed I think that it’s going to be an easy night. It’s not until a few minutes later someone is sneaking out to get a drink of water, to use the restroom, etc. Eli is the worst of the three because this is every night like clock work with him. As soon as I finally get him to bed, he is back up wanting something and most of the time if it is not something to drink it is for me to cover him back up because he doesn’t know how to do it. There are nights I can handle them pretty good with all the excuses but other nights I am exhausted and just to tired to fight with them.

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.Netflix Bedtime Staller Infographic USA
