What time does your kid go to sleep?

I put ds in his bed usually around 9pm. But he usually doesn't fall asleep until around 10 or 11. My nieces go to bed at like 7pm year round, I think its crazy, in the summer time its still light outside at 7pm! In the winter time, I put ds to bed at 8 instead of 9, because it gets dark earlier.

  • 7:30ish during school year especially because it takes them a while to fall asleep. I want them to be able to wind down alone, in calm quietness before falling asleep. Now with summer out - they can stay up as late as 9pm. And because our days have been pretty full they fall asleep pretty quickly.

  • School nights its 9 or 9:30, weekends they usually pass out by 10:30 and during the summer they get a free pass and no bedtime but my kids are so used to their schedule that they rarely make it to 11 pm.

  • Our boys go to bed around 8:30 (sometimes a little earlier) if they didn't have a nap. If they had naps then it is around 9:30. They usually fall asleep pretty quick. We have quite a few friends that put their kids to bed at 7. We never did that because sometimes dh doesn't even get home from work until 6 or so and leaves at 8 in the morning so he would never see them.

  • Right now routine is on hold...usually 9pm though
    since its been so hot my son has been taking more naps so he's up later playing around since the house is cooler

  • i have a 4 and a 2 year old, both boys:). My children go to sleep 8pm. Every now and then we will go out on the weekend and get home around 9pm.. but nothing ever past 9:30pm. Also, if I notice my children being really tired in the day, they will go to sleep at 7pm. :) Regardless if it is light or dark. Bed time is bed time here...
