A Saturday lie-in! Lazy, or wise ?
For kids, getting up (just as "going to bed") may be quite difficult, but it's always pleasant to feel a soft stroke on your cheek and hear "Waky, waky! Rise and shine..."
- I, heard it many many times... and the sun was seldom shining! - )
When going to bed, toddlers are often read to, told stories or sung lullabies.
When kids become teenagers, waking up becomes difficult and happens much later...

"The natural way of waking up" (light and sound)
Let's remember that you can be an "early bird" (waking up and working early...) or a night owl", going to bed (and working) very late; sometimes, they do it because they couldn't sleep with an unfinished work.
Let's also remember that the number of hours of sleep you need varies according to people and their ages.
I do hope you won't fall asleep in the middle of the exercise... and that this vocabulary will be useful to you. Good Luck!
