For back to school? I have 2 weeks until b-t-s and was wanting to start getting them used to getting up and going to bed. How soon do/did you start?

We started ours exactly a week before school started back, that is how we do it every year.

We may have to do that as well. This week isn't working. They are so used to sleeping late and getting up late. Next week DH will be back, so I'm hoping the extra reinforcement will help.

DD's fighting it too, this morning she didn't set her alarm and got up at 10 (oops, I was working and just didn't feel like fighting with her about getting up).

They just left this morning, so I won't know the answer to that until Friday afternoon.
