If you've ever wondered why your children seems to be the only one night sleeping in their kids’ bunk beds then you might be interested in some new research from parenting site Netmums.
A study carried out by the site found that a third of parents have lied about the sleep habits of their little ones - suggesting you might not be alone if you can't get your children to sleep.
According to the survey, half of families have been left exhausted by lack of sleep and 62 per cent have even lied to mask the fact they aren't coping with sleep deprivation.
Of the 11,000 parents polled, 16 per cent said their children regularly wake in the night and one quarter probably don't need to set an alarm clock - since their children wake every morning before 6.30am.
Netmums health visitor Maggie Fisher said: "This research shows there is no 'one-size fits all' solution to children's sleep. Different approaches work for different families and even different children within the same family."
