I have thought about doing this, but I was afraid that was too severe!! I sit in the hallway until my kids go to sleep(anxiety issues), but it also allows me to make sure DD10 does NOT read. The minute I go to the bathroom or downstairs for something, she is out of bed and grabbing a book to read (or pulling it out from under her pillow!!!).
