SS won't go to bed without BF there
Youngest SS has been super wired last few weekends and ignorning bedtime - still awake at 10:30-11pm (he's 7). He shouts at BF for being told to go to sleep, and then ultimately BF curls up on couch with him and waits for him to fall asleep, and then sleeps down there.
We are in a new house (since early December), and the SSs (7 and 9) bedroom is downstairs and we are upstairs. I'm getting frustrated that BF might be setting a precident that it is okay that SS is staying up so late, and that his dad has to be around for him to sleep. He can sleep alone, and should, he's 7! I want to sleep in my bed with my partner!
Any suggestions? I also encourage BF that maybe he shouldn't be getting deserts if he already is high energy as I think it probably contributes to him staying up longer. BF said, well I stay down there because I don't want him bugging us in our bedroom. Well if he comes up, send him back to his room! Arg.
