Other suggestions? Well, grab his leg and drag him out of bed. Um, OR...you could just let HIM be the parent, as apparently has been the case. No offense at all intended, just my two cents. Any time you permit your child to ignore your request, you are asking for trouble. Whatever you do, it must be immediate and effective, or you are going to be dealing with laziness and disobediance in other areas.

clap clap You are so on the mark, David! I can speak from experience. My brothers and I were difficult to wake at times, and there were really only two things that got our attention. My dad's belt, and ice water.

I'll say this; parents can't be squemish. If they are, the kids will pay for it later. Take charge! And for the good of the kids, never, never, EVER let them get the upper hand over the parents.

That's because you live in TX....kids still listen there...well, so far. I heard a story recently that a parent here in PA got CPS called on them for just spanking their child....ridiculous. Especially since these kids don't listen at all in the city schools starting at a very young age.


Anyway, regarding the question....my son was grumpy with me once when I woke him up so I simply told him I wasn't waking him up anymore because I don't need the abuse; thus, he never was grumpy again when I woke him because he didn't hear his alarm, but as you can see, he is a really good kid because he understood. (I let him read this and he added "and no belt.) laughing
