    1 “Bucket” of water, coming right up.

    In my college days, there was a very big difference between asking someone to wake you up, or to get you up. Wake you up required only a verbal acknowledgement that you were awake, while get you up meant “by any means necessary,” as in ShortStraw’s four buckets of water. And you couldn’t change your mind in the AM.

    That’s a nasty stammer you have there – have you considered speech therapy?

    Waking my son up was always an adventure, wonder if he still has “dancing kitty” nightmares


    The cat probably does

    If dad wakes the boys up against their will he could be prosecuted. But if the boys stay in bed , miss school , don’t graduate and end up on drugs – then they get govt money , food stamps , housing , and healthcare. Stay boy’s, stay!

    We didn’t really need four “buckets” of water!

    I threaten to sing the good morning song to my son if he doesn’t get out of bed. That usually gets him moving pretty quickly.

    hmmm for me, the “worst thing” was having the blankets removed from my body while a window was cracked open in winter. That was how you get kids up.
    NOW what I do, is I will sometimes put my alarm clock far enough away that I physically have to get up and turn it off.

    My threat, three times a week, is that when I return from my workout, any kid NOT dressed and getting breakfast gets… THE SWEATY HUGS!

    The phrase, " if you don’t get up, no more allowances." would be very effective. (Note: the words video games, television, etc…. can be substituted for alloawnces)

    Based on the division of labour in the morning… Toby is right. You only get up when mom yells.
    .
    Or in my case…. lies about the time. Don’t want to be late for school.

    @Allan ….. opening the window wouldn’t have worked on me. We didn’t get insulation for the house until the 70’s. Windows open in the summer. Frost on the inside in the winter.
