What are the bedtimes in your house?

Hubby and I were talking about this last night. How old are your kids, what are their bedtimes, and when did you move the bedtimes back? Ours are 7 and 5, and bedtimes are 8 on school nights, 9 on weekends and holidays.

  • Bedtime at our house is always at 8pm. We have found that when our daughter doesn't get to bed by 8pm, the next day we have a crabby girl on our hands. LOL!

  • My daughter is 6 and she is a HYYYYPER one. To get her to bed is like pulling teeth. BUT I strictly enforce her bedtime to at latest 9 pm. 7 is bath time and I let her watch her disney channel untill about 8:30 then 20 minutes of book time. Sometimes she will cry and beg to stay up but thats normal I just leave the nightlight on and crack the door and let her be. she usually fall's asleep right away.

  • My step daughter is 7.. soon to be 8. She goes to bed at 8:30 on school nights and 9 on weekends. Sometimes when shes had a bad day on the weekend she goes to bed at 8:30. Shes usually very good about bedtime, never asks to stay up.

  • I have a 5 year old girl and she goes to bed around 9:oop.m. She is a great sleeper and we have no problems putting her to bed. She might get out occassionally and come into our room but pretty much stays in her bed. On the weekends she goes to bed around 9:30p.m.
