What times do teens normally go to bed?

I have 2 kids ages 17 and 15 yrs old, and lately they started complaining about going to bed at 7:30 pm on week nights and 8:00 on week-ends. My husband and I think that this is reasonable any advice is welcome.

  • I think that is way to early for a teenager to go to sleep. There are health problems associated with oversleeping as well, namely heart disease and even increased risk of death. http://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/guide/physical-side-effects-oversleeping.
    I think that 11pm on school nights and midnight on weekends is more appropriate of a bed time for their age. That is unless they live on a farm and are up at 4:00am everyday.
