Once a week you should let one kid stay up 15 minutes past their bedtime with Mom and Dad. Each week it will rotate. The rest of the kids have to go to bed on time, no chatting, no interruptions. The kids who gets to stay up can choose how he/she wants to spend their time. My son likes to read a story just the three of us. My daughter likes to watch a show with us and snuggle. Each child is different, but the kids will look forward to this fun reward!
