This 8 y/o boy sent his mum a formal letter of complaint about his bedtime and it’s brilliant
A mum has shared the letter of complaint written by her 8 y/o son about the time he has to go to bed and it’s just the escape we needed today..
His letter was shared by mum, Dr Alexandra Jellicoe, and by the look of the research he’s bothered to do, he’s obviously a chip off the old block.
‘I just received a letter of complaint from my 8 year old son,’ wrote @alexjellicoe on Twitter.
And just in case that’s tricky to read, here it is again.
I am complaining about my bedtime.
I am now 8 years old and need more independence.
Obviously I’m ready to have a later bedtime. I have checked the NHS website and 8 year olds need 10 hours and 15 minutes sleep. This means I should go to bed at 9 o’clock.
Lots of love Max xxx
Top work, Max. And it got even better when this happened on Twitter.
If it helps for future conversations, our sleeping advice also recommends that a child’s bedroom should be tidy and also screen-free zones (sorry Max)

No! And just a few of the things people were saying about it.
Backfired. Repeat, backfired. pic.twitter.com/ZI4r81iyf3

You could send him a holding letter – ‘Thank you for your letter. Due to administrative delays, we aim to attend to your concerns within the next 30 days… ‘ 😆

Thanks for that. I’m now aware that my 8 year old must not access this part of the site 😂😂😂

Mega cute. Slightly better than this letter I received from my son a few years ago. pic.twitter.com/ZMgJZsG8Am
