    I have this aggravating issue wherein my parents turn of the Wifi when it is bedtime. I could of course have turned it back on once they were asleep, but unfortunately the router is installed in their room. :mad2::mad2::mad2::mad2::mad2:

    Would you turn off the WiFi in your house to ensure your kids slept early?

    wow that's harsh. I mean when i go to bed i'd usually sleep 10 minutes anyways, but i have the habit of looking through my phone for 5 minutes first. my parents have threatened me with this before but they've never managed it because they do the same on their phones loool

    Yeh I have this. It's insanely annoying, but probably for my own benefit.

    Probably not... I'll just take my kids devices away from them before they go to bed
    When they are our age, I let them be on their phone for as long as they want and feel that *****y un-rested feeling in the morning like I do as punishment.

    My parent s tried to do this when we were younger and I can understand why but I don't think it's a good idea if they're leafy hooked on their devices as they'll probably just act up and won't go to bed st all, from a young age they should be taught moderation and maybe their devices should be taken away before they sleep

    Omg my sister has the wifi password so if we don't listen to her she changes it as punishment 😭😭😭😭 and then we have to suck up to her to get the wifi back. Its like the ultimate punishment and she always ends up getting her way

    It's so annoying but to answer your question OP nope, parents don't turn off wifi for sleep.

    Not to my kids ( though sleep is good !!!!! Just go on a mission and turn it on in their room > do some crazy ninja moves or some **** :P I don't know but eh sleeping is good and my parents are the same though its not in their bedroom, its downstairs in the living room and the stairs make noise at night if you step on it so i have to be quiet!

    That kind of strict parenting gives me goosebumps.
    I remember one of my old friends had parents like that. Felt so sorry for him.

    Buy a dongle and top it up to use at night, or just tether your phone.

    My brother has set up the router to have his password; he turns on parental controls to block wifi to an individual's device if that individual does not listen.

    Our wifi router is never turned off. It's like the fridge.

    My mum normally takes the ipad from my brothers when its their bedtime because otherwise they'll be up till midnight on youtube. I would do the same. Everyone else gets to stay up late on the internet doing whatever.
