  • Recently it's been about 8:30-9:00 pm; Mine are 8-9 now. When they were 5 and under they were in bed anytime from 5:30-7:30 pm From about Kindergarten to about a few months ago it was 8:00 pm. If my kids were still in public school they would be in bed by 8:00 pm. However now that we are homeschooling we have realized that we can do later bed time, mainly because they don't have to be up so early to catch the school bus. That's why it's 8:30-9:00 pm. (Most night's it's 8:45 pm)

  • Mine are 7 and their bedtime is 9 but our school starts late so they don't have to wake up until 7:30.

  • wow, im so surprised to see how early everyone elses kids seem to go to bed! lol. my 7 year old gets up at 730 am to catch the bus at 818 sharp every morning. i dont have him get in bed till 930, i figure even if he isnt asleep till 10, thats nine and a half hours of sleep. maybe he just doesnt need as much sleep, i dont know. he is happy,is on the a-b honor roll in schol, and even when we let him stay up late friday and saturday nights, hes up at 730, whether he went to bed at 930, or 1 am! who wouldve thunk it. lol
