Over the 5:30 a.m. wake-up call? Us, too. These expert-recommended tricks will help you train your kids to snooze longer (or at least stay in their own beds), so you can get more rest.

Most mornings, including weekends, my 3-year-old climbs into our bed around 5:30—a full hour earlier than we actually need to wake up. It wouldn’t be so bad if she could be still and just cuddle, but she wiggles and sings and puts her stuffed monkey on my face. Needless to say, I’ve been feverishly researching ways to get her to sleep longer, or at least let me rest until my alarm goes off. I asked parenting expert Betsy Brown Braun, author of You’re Not the Boss of Me, for her advice on how to get everyone to sleep later. If you’re craving a snoozy Sunday morning, try these stay-in-bed strategies.
