Kids’ Best Bedtime Stall Tactics Have Met Their Match: #5MoreMinutes

Kids are all kinds of creative as soon as the clock strikes time-for-bed. If you’ve never experienced a child’s bedtime stall tactics then either:

  1. you’ve never put a child to bed, or
  2. you’re lying.

Kids will say anything to get out of going to bed.

Let me know if you’ve ever heard this one:

Can you fill up my water bottle, please?

or this one (after, not more than five minutes earlier insisting that no, in fact, they did not have to):

I have to pee.

or how about this (this one is a popular one in our house)?

My leg hurts. I need a hot water bottle.

And my personal favourite (for real):

I want another hug.

Sweet, right? Except after the umpteenth time, not so much.

Netflix Canada totally gets this and has come up with a solution guaranteed to make kids — and parents — do a little bedtime happy dance.

Now you can launch your own bedtime offensive with Netflix Canada’s 5 Minute Favorites. Picture the confusion on your child’s face — followed by delight — when you counter their bedtime stall tactic with your own #5MoreMinutes of DinoTrux.

(P.S. This also works great at homework time. I’ve never seen my kids so focused on completing their school work just to be able to watch a five-minute episode of one of their favourite Netflix shows!)
