What time is bedtime during the summer?

What time have the kids been getting to bed this summer? If they stay up late do they get cranky the next day?

  • It's been 9pm for my kids so far.  They are 10, 8 , 7 and 4.  Any later and they are all super cranky.  The younger 2 are starting to get cranky at this time but it doesn't get dark until 8:30pm.  I've been trying to convince them both to take a nap every day.  They need it.

  • My 12 yr old will be 13 in a few weeks and if he goes with little sleep over a few days, he gets very cranky. Summer - his bedtime is 10pm and he wakes up on his own by 7am.

    My 15 yr old goes to bed on her own - usually around 9pm so we don't enforce a bedtime and she has to wake up by 9am.

    I also have 20 yr old twins, but as long as they are working - they set their own schedule.

  • 9:00 still since they go to school year round & only have July off during the summer.

  • She is 12 and stays up till 10 during the summer. But she also sleeps in until 9 on M - S (up at 7 on Sunday to get ready for church.) During the school year it's 9:15 on Su - Th, 10 F and Sa. She gets up at 6:30 for school, 9 on Saturday, 7 on Sunday.)

  • Usually all of our kiddos (ages 11, 9, 8, 7, 6, 4 & 2) go to bed at 7:30-8:00pm because they are up each day at 6:30am....they are ready for bed at that time! When we have activities in the evening they do get to stay up until around 9pm.
