If there’s one thing that I’m obsessive about, it’s keeping my boys on a bedtime routine. First they have a bedtime snack, then brush their teeth. I read them a book, put on some relaxing music and tuck them into their beds. The routine almost never changes and as a result, I generally don’t have to deal with too many bedtime battles.
But there are those odd times, especially during school breaks, when my boys will beg to stay up “just a little longer!” Usually, it’s when they’re watching one of their favourite Netflix shows on television and I have to admit that I usually cave when they ask if they can finish the episode before bed. There are all kinds of techniques kids use to get that extra bit of time, and Netflix Canada knows them all!
