    Why is it that kids always have to resist when parents tell them its time for bed, but when it comes to waking them up for school in the morning they're suddenly glued to the bedpost? Why is that?

    Every parent knows the struggle of getting kids to sleep at night. There's always an excuse. We've compiled some of the things kids say when you tell them “It's time for bed” -- and the perfect reply to each:

    1. "NO!"

    3. "I haven't finished my homework yet."

    If this is true and all you're doing now is watch TV, you're in big trouble.



    3. "My teacher said there's no school tomorrow."

    4. "But it's the weekend!"
