    Default What time?

    I'm curious as to what time your kids go to bed during the week? Please mention their ages!

    8:00pm for the 4,6 and almost 9 year old
    9:00pm for the 10 year old but sometime I put him to be earlier if I think he needs it

    My 12 year old, it depends on when all of her homework is done..but we aim for 9pm. Sometimes is more like 10. We also let her stay up and watch nova on Wednesdays which means bed at 10pm. I really think that's too late though, I wouldn't let her do that all the time...I think in general she could benefit from more sleep. Once cheering is over she will be able to get her homework done earlier and get to bed earlier.

    My daughter is 5, turning 6 in July and she goes to bed for 7pm. On the odd occasion when she's really tired then she will go up at 6.30pm.

    I've always felt mean about this, although on special occasions she will be up later. I know that if she goes to bed later than 7pm, she will be a tired and grumpy little girl the following day. She will sleep in until 9am sometimes too, so that makes me think 7pm isn't too early for her?

    Do you think I should extend her bedtime or carry on doing what works for her?

    I think it is always best to do what works for your child. My children do not have set bedtime, but they are also homeschooled and can sleep in if needed. They go to bed when they start to get whinny. Sometimes that might mean 7:30 (4yo), or that might mean 9:30 (8yo). If my girls needed to be up at 5:30 to get ready for school then I would make sure they went to bed earlier.

    Between 730 and 8. If it is just me at home it is usually 730, but on karate nights and when DH is home it is closer to 800.

    Mine are 19 months, 4 and 6. The baby and the 4 yr old still nap, though Conner is starting to grow out of it and only naps every couple of days now. They get up around 7 for school.

    Nope, keep doing what you are doing. When my oldest was that age, bedtime used to be around then.

    I could easily see my 4 year old going to bed at that time, its just near impossible in my house to accomplish that these days. The 6 year old I have now, that wouldn't work for her probably. But i could see lots of 6 year olds going to bed at 7. I wouldn't change a thing until things look like they need changing!

    9 year old has lights out at 9pm. We wake him at 7am and he's always grumpy so he could do with going to bed earlier.

    3 and 5 year old are lights out usually by 8pm.

    8:30 for my 6 year-old, 9:30 for my 10 year-old. We experimented. Putting my 6 year-old to bed earlier just made her wake up earlier AND give us more of a fuss at bedtime, so we settled on 8:30 and it's working.

    My 8 and 9 year old go to bed at 9:00, the 13 year old is supposed to go to bed at 9:00 too but seems like there is always some excuse so he doesn't usually actually go to bed until between 9:30-10. The high schoolers pretty much go to bed when they want, they know they have to get up in the morning.
