I found the best way to get my sweet teenage girls to go bed earlier last night.
Their routine is to take their showers at night and then go to bed.
The boys also take their baths at night.
And I like to run the dishwasher when it's full-usually at night.
I don't know why it's taken me so long to figure this one out.
The girls don't like to run out of hot water.
So I said, "The dishwasher will turn on at exactly X o'clock. It uses a lot of hot water. You might want to think about that."
We all got to bed so much earlier.
