  • My kids go to bed the same time every night regardless. My oldest just can not cope with a change in his schedule. If I let him stay up late one night, the whole family suffers for three days afterward. He just needs a consistent amount of sleep.
    Middle- 3 and baby-2...7:30-8pm.
    It is very rare that they go more than half hour later.

  • My 9 year old goes to sleep by 9 pm during the week and on the weekend, I have him settle down by 11 pm but he can watch tv
    My 11 month old is in bed by 8/8:30..every night

  • 4 yr old weekdays: 8-830pm
    weekends: 9pm

    5 yr old weekdays: 9pm
    weekends 930pm

    But they both still take about a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day.

  • My kids went to bed at the same time every night 7 days a week. 9pm. Unlees we where out late for some reason. That was the bed time.

  • 9yo, 7yo and almost 4yo go to bed at 7pm on school nights and usually in bed around 9pm on weekends (later in the summer)
    8yo goes to bed at 8pm on school nights and 9pm on weekends.

    They have to get up at 6:45am and we've tried later bedtimes and it resulted in tantrums in the morning and the 9yo refusing to get out of bed and get ready for school. She was late 4 times in the first 9 days of school after we changed her time to 8pm so it was moved back to 7pm like the little kids. the 7yo definitely needs the sleep and will sometimes take an hour long nap after school.

  • My grandkids are 5 and 6 They both go to bed at 8. The schedule doesn't change on weekends during school. On breaks and the summer..9 -930 sometimes.

  • 16 yr old- 10 pm weekdays and preferably before 1am on weekends-she usually passes out by then so...
    13 yr old- between 9 and 10 depending how he gets up...also by 1 am on weekends

    *I let them sleep on Saturday but not after about 10:30 or 11 and on Sunday I make them get up around 9am so they aren't too jacked up for the week
