My four year old is like I am: she HATES to wake up. I completely empathize with her, and I have horrible memories of screaming battles with my parents waking me up for school. How should I go about waking her up for school in the morning?
It used to be really easy, I'd simply go in the room, turn on the light, and say "good morning". It slowly got more difficult, and is now to the point where she simply covers her head with the blanket and shouts "no thank you!" or "go away".
The first thing I was thinking was that she simply wasn't getting enough sleep. But, like me, enough is never enough. I can easily sleep 13 hours straight and she will too, which unfortunately doesn't work in the real world (yes, I've talked to our Doctor and ruled out medical issues). Even on days when we can get her to go to sleep early, she still is ridiculously difficult to get up in the morning.
Any help the community can provide on effective ways to wake my 4 year old up in the morning would be awesome. Thanks!
