Well, as I told Ericka, I don't agree that the earliest riser gets to

It depends on the age, degree of independance, etc. Like I said, for us it
means waking my son at 10:00 am during long breaks. That's "dictating", but I

hour and a half past my lunchtime, wants breakfast, etc. If he's up at 10:00,
lately he gets breakfast and is hungry enough for lunch later with me.
If I let him sleep on and on, we're not doing a darn thing together.
