Question: My eight year old son won’t sleep in past 6 am, even if he stays up past his bedtime. We have tried herbal sleep aids, warm milk, sound machines, rewards…everything we can think of.
I don’t know how to get him to sleep in later, the lack of sleep is starting to impact his school work. Recently his standardized test scores on concentration where so low that he is borderline qualifying for state intervention. The rest of the tests he was off the charts the other way so I know it isn’t an intelligence issue.The only thing I can seem to do is make him go to bed around 8pm but then he doesn’t fall asleep until at least 8:30 and misses out on play time with his friends. What can we do? Thank you.
