  • Depending on what's going on the next day, my five-year-old daughter usually goes to bed between eight-thirty and nine, and my teenage stepson between ten and eleven.

  • between 8 and 9 most likely. I might let my older dd stay up to see dh when he gets up for work at 9:30 cause they miss him, but I know younger dd won't make it that late.

  • We keep a pretty consistent schedule. My 2 and 4 yo's go to bed around 7:30-8. My 15 yo goes to bed at 9 by choice. My 11 and 13 yo's go to bed at 9:30, maybe 10 in the summer if they ask and have been well behaved that day.

  • Her usual bedtime during the school year was 8:30-9:00, unless her games kept her up later. So now it's 10pm during the week & 11pm on weekends. (later if a friend spends the night of course :p)

  • Anywhere between nine and ten. Unless something big is going on then whenever they say they are tired.

  • whenever, really, unless we have somewhere to go the next morning. on school nights i have to let them stay up til 9, if i put them to bed any earlier they just talk and play til they fall asleep. at 9, they settle right in and go to sleep. so i obviously let them stay up later than that when there is nothing going on the next morning. but its never later than 11 pm.
