When I was a young child my loving parents used to keep me awake (by engaging me in rigorous activity) until midnight or later so when I finally did go to sleep, at the same time they did, I wouldn't wake up in the middle of the night and in turn wake them up.
Suffice to say I was probably the only infant in K-Mart at 11:30pm three nights a week.
(Hint, I just proposed a solution to prevent the very problem you're facing right now: force your children to stay awake until you decide to go to bed.)
And you're probably wondering why you're reading parenting advice from a 22-year old.
Carry on with the list.
