Being the Disciplinarian

I think this is the worst part of the Mom gig; being the disciplinarian. I am not all that good at it either, truth be told. I am not scared of my kids or worried that they won't like me, it just isn't much fun having to discipline the kids. But, it seems that letting my high school aged children try to determine their own bedtimes makes for a VERY stressful morning for all.

So, I have decreed a bedtime for both of them (of course this was met with weeping and gnashing of teeth). I don't think 10pm is too early for teenagers that need to get up by 6:30 each morning to make it to school on time. What do you think? Please let me know.
