  • My kids, 7 and 11(almost 12), both go to bed between 8:30 and 9:00. But if they are cranky or have had a long tiring day... they go to bed earlier.

  • My 14 yo went to bed at 9:45 or 10 when she was 12.

  • My 12yo goes to bed at 10pm-started last year which was her first year in middle school. She asked and we said that we would try it out and see if she was too cranky or having trouble in school (especially falling alseep) we would revoke the 'privilege'. Totally worked-never once had an issue with her and she felt like we trusted her and gave her some freedom.
