This is just one user "Debbie" who ambiguously claims she's lost her email. And she doesn't clarify how, why, anything.
Now I'm not putting it past Big Tech to simultaneously "lose" all relevant cloud backups, but this isn't showing that at all.
I give this advice as someone who was allowed to literally stay up all hours of the night myself, and missed probably a full third of highschool on the tail end of it. Wasn't forced awake either. Parents were like "alright, whatever, I'm going to work."
I came out OK, but only after struggling throughout my early 20s forming a routine. It's still something I have to "work on". I'd rather have been taught it as a malleable kid.
And there's a lot of replies about being super aggressive with the kid. Thus far I've not found that necessary. Explosions are less effective, long term, than firm routine. Explosions are less work for the guardian though. 👀
First of all: lol. 😅
Second, as someone suggested in the previous thread: force him to turn off the tablet and get to bed!
Now, as I understand, you're the grandma not the father. I don't know what your situation is specifically, or if you're even in charge of getting him to bed, or if you're even really concerned and struggling with him, or if this is more of a "joke". But, I'm going through this with my 4 year old to some extent, and I've found that very little of what Mom says to get him to go to bed works. I'm almost always needed to gently but firmly give the "OK. We're done messing around. Let's go, and let's go NOW" speech when he's acting up.
I'm sure you have that in you, if you need to do it. It's a shame because, in my belief, that's not Grandma's job. Hopefully, if it's a real serious situation, you can get Dad or Mom to work on that aspect of their parenting. It's important for the young man.
Good insight, and I think spot on as regards to pacing and structure of "The Show".
I could expand on this, and provide that David Lynch used the soap opera format in Twin Peaks to great effect to slow roll the unveil of a deep, dark plot involving sexual crimes against children (IMO involving C_A and definitely Flowers by Irene) to a sleeping, early 90s, pre-internet audience. The entire affair utilized the pacing and structure you mention. I think, psychologically, "it has to be this way."
White hats can't just pour cold water on the normies heads. They must be slowly awakened or they'll just bolt to the next waiting evil overlords.
Heck, the entire crux of his meta commentary was "Who is the dreamer?"
It has to be this way.
