Putting the kitchen clock forward to trick the little buggers into going to bed early

They're tired, I'm tired. Put the clock 45 minutes ahead so they thought it was 8.15 when it was only 7.30. Both dc now settled in bed. Several bedtimes this week have been past 9 due to procrastination and general larking around.

Please tell me that conning my DVDs in this way is within the realms of acceptable parenting.

YANBU at all. Make the most of it before they get wise to your tricks!

I think that's a genius idea! I wish I'd thought of it!

I used to do this.

I was gutted when they started checking the tv to see what time it was. Gutted I tell you.
