  • My kids went to bed at the same time all year long. Including weekends. They were in bed at 9 pm..Of coarse there were those nights we were at friends or families house late. except then they were in bed 9pm.

    So I say to you put them in bed at 8pm..You need your you time to..Ever in the summer

  • Kids behave better when on a schedule that dosnt change, except for the very rare occasion. Try it, you'll see.

  • Ours is sticking to his schedule. Bedtime at 8 every night but Fridays, when bedtime is 8:30.

  • We did bedtime at 8 during the school year and 8:30 during the summer when he was six. This past school year he got extended to bedtime 8:30 during the school year and 9:00 during the summer. We will probably keep it that way until he is about 10 or so.

    summer they get to stay up a bit later so around 8-8:30
