DD going to bed at 8am and getting up at 6pm, would you allow this?

Exactly what the title says. Thanks.

Why is she sleeping during the day

How old is she

DSHathawayGivesMeFannyGallops Tue 14-Aug-18 17:46:23

Without her age & a context it's hard to say.

How old is she?
If 12 no if 22 probably.

DontTryJustBe Tue 14-Aug-18 17:47:03

How old is she? What are her reasons for doing so? Does it fit with you and your lifestyle or cause you problems?

I can imagine my dd doing that, she's 13 and has always had trouble sleeping. It would bother me if she kept me awake at night or never left the house.

Doesnt sound healthy unless she is working the night shift. What is the reason or is it just young adult on holiday thing?

She's 18. Starts uni in September (living at home for it) has been sleeping like this for 3 weeks. She works in the evenings, gets ready as soon as she wakes up, but not a night shift and has to set an alarm on these days (4pm!!)

It's driving me mad honestly. She isn't noisy or anything at night but can't stand the sleep pattern.

Just want to say I know she is an adult but also that I can have house rules.

Crunchymum Tue 14-Aug-18 17:51:36

Lots of mitigating factors surely?

But no unless she was a nightshift worker then no I wouldn't be a fan.

Is she a gamer? Does she work?

Nicknacky Tue 14-Aug-18 17:51:40

What time does she finish work?

NotAllIndividuals Tue 14-Aug-18 17:52:15

Why does it upset you so much? Honest question.

Tumbleweed101 Tue 14-Aug-18 17:52:19

What time does she get home from work? It may be she is then unwinding for a couple hours after getting in too.

Grimbles Tue 14-Aug-18 17:52:51

Why does it bother you? What drives you mad about it?

Vitalogy Tue 14-Aug-18 17:54:14

I'd leave her to it, my son has had many of these phases, especially in the holidays. If she's not noisy, why do you think it's bothering you so much?

WhyAreWeddingsSoAwks Tue 14-Aug-18 17:54:22

Some people need to feel they have had an “evening” of downtime after coming home from work. Sounds like she has just shifted the start time of a pretty normal day?

P.s: I did this from 18-21 but it’s because I was online gaming grin

Why would your house rules include her sleeping? Especially when she works evenings?

Seems like you just want to tell her what to do.

Sweetsongbird1 Tue 14-Aug-18 17:55:47

So she is working shifts ?? hmm

Duchessgummybuns Tue 14-Aug-18 17:56:17

Also guilty of this as a late teen gamer... Warcraft man... so many hours wasted 🙈

OpiningGambit Tue 14-Aug-18 17:56:26

It's obviously not the most mature or sensible move on her part, but I can't work out why it's getting under your skin so much?

Mollywobbles82 Tue 14-Aug-18 17:56:59

How would you justify the intrinsic value that you're placing on following a standard schedule?

adaline Tue 14-Aug-18 17:57:31

I don't see the problem. She's working, just late shifts and presumably wants to relax when she gets in instead of going straight to bed.

Would you be happy getting home from work and going straight up to sleep everyday?

SnuggyBuggy Tue 14-Aug-18 17:58:03

I sort of get that having someone wandering the house at night would be unsettling I think as long as she tries to be quiet it's not unreasonable.

arethereanyleftatall Tue 14-Aug-18 17:58:57

I'd let her sleep when she wanted, but would say if she's sleeping in the day for no good reason I wouldn't make any extra effort to be quieter than usual.
