  • I try to get the kids in bed around 7 on school nights. Lights off no later than 7:30. I let them stay up a bit later on the weekends.

  • 8 on school nights and somewhere between 8:30 and 9 on the weekends for the Los. I got to bed anywhere between 9:30 and 11. It depends on how chaotic my day was.

  • Oh I forgot to answer about my own. I would love to be in bed to watch the 10 pm news, but it never happens. I usually go to bed around midnight. The last couple of nights I've gone to bed at 2 am and 1 am, but then couldn't fall asleep for another hour or so. I hate when I go to bed and I can't sleep.

  • 7:30 on school night & 8:30 on weekends

  • My kids are in bed by 11 most nights, and I am in bed by 12 or 1, sometimes later if I wait up for my husband. We don't have a reason to be up early most days, so the later the kids go to bed, the better so we can all get some sleep in the morning with my husband working so late.

  • My kids go to bed around eight pm. I'm a night owl so midnight is turning in early for me.
