Our daughter goes to bed around 8:30 and sleeps until she wakes up. Generally this occurs about twelve hours later.

I feel like  I should be blowing reveille and yanking her toes, rather that allowing her to lay abed until 8:30 or 9:00 am. There’s this little voice though that’s telling me that she needs to sleep if she’s sleeping.

Is it bad to allow this child to sleep so long? Am I training her poorly? Will she suffer through life being unable to wake up when it’s time to go to work or classes in college? Will she be a lazy ass? 

How important is making a child wake up early and do something? Will she be smarter, stronger, healthier, more resilient if I start shaking her at 7am?

What do you do at home?
