Do you let young children stay up to midnight on New Years Eve?
Old enough to know what's going on age?
I have a five year old and a ten year old, and they're excited about New Year's because they get to "stay up super late." If years past are any indication, though, they'll probably poop out well before midnight and I'll end up carrying them off to bed.. haha
When my children were little....if they wanted to stay up for the Chimes at Midnight, I was fine with it, as long as they took a little nap during the day. It was actually nice to have them up to celebrate the first moments of a brand new year......Toast their Kitty Cocktails...make a secret wish.....and then, to bed!...
We let our kids stay up if they wanted to. Since the following days is a holiday, they could sleep in. Most of the time though, they dozed off before it hit midnight.
No. Still don't, though the oldest is almost 10.
I let them stay up until 9 or so and watch videos of other parts of the world and their celebrations, such as Australia and China. It's enough for the little ones to see fireworks on the TV and then be put to bed.
Yep because they are out of school the next day - so I let them enjoy -run around -tire themselves out-and fall asleep when they fall asleep - they drank sparkling cider - while we toasted with champagne -and they danced and sing - and we watched movies together
I let mine stay up, but they don't they fall asleep before midnight because they are so tired.
If I had kids, I would let them for New Years. I swear I try to avoid Walmart at all costs but sometimes when I go (it's usually past midnight because everywhere else is closed, my last resort is Walmart) I always see babies running around past midnight. This is crazy to me, I would never let my kids be up so late!

I'm amazed at what I keep seeing! There are diaper babies running around unattended everywhere, they show up in my yard. I live in a townhouse complex so it's not literally "my" yard. But still, does anyone...
