Both Nate and Barber have recently blogged about the parental frustrations of bedtime and/or sleep pattern problems with kids. As a (very tired) father of four I am all too familiar with these stories. I still battle it with my 9 and 12 year olds. Anyway, I wanted to link a column by Anne Lamott on this subject. I try and read it periodically as her perspective challenges my hard-ass tendencies and confirms the worldview I claim to hold but have trouble living out. Just something to chew on.
