From a parent on the forum: My 17 year old girl has always had a problem getting herself up in the morning. It seems no matter what time she goes to bed, she will not wake up to her alarm clock. A while back, we got "The World's Loudest Alarm Clock." All it has done is wake the rest of the house, while she continues to sleep. It can literally go off for an hour and she will just keep sleeping. We've tried not waking her and letting her be late and suffer those consequences, as well as waking her at the last minute and making her go to school without showering, makeup, etc.
We recently had some luck by creating a punishment of taking away her cell phone when we have to wake her. However, that incentive has now faded. Suggestions?
