Normal sleep?

I know each child is unique.


In the past month, it almost seemed to happen like a switch,

What shifted? Time going to sleep, or time waking up?

Mostly just curious, my kid NEVER slept the "recommended length", and we have rules in place (have since around age 5, I'd say!) about what time you are allowed to get out of bed--he was saying he was getting up in the "4's". Getting up & going downstairs quietly & watching TV or reading in his room or quietly playing, yes, but!!

So, anyhow, I'm no help! Though, I'd say that if nothing's changed with the meds, it's probably NOT them, either maturity or something like that?

Thanks for responding.


He's not waking at an inappropriate time (thank goodness, lol), it's more the going to bed time.


If he had a typical day before, he would be sleeping by 8:15pm.


Now it's 9:30 or so.


Putting him to bed at 8pm was torturous for him (I can relate to being a child and being made to lay there for an hour +) so basically I just let him go to bed around 9 on a school night (930 on a non school night).
