  • In my neighborhood kids are all outside even at 9:00pm. I want my kids in the house by 7:30 to eat, bath and brush thier teeth. It takes till 8:30 to do everything. It is hard to get them in because the other kids get to stay out.

  • 8 PM until jr high then 9 PM all the way through high school. They really needed their sleep. Never complained.

  • My son just started junior high, so his bedtime is now 9:30 on school nights, and on weekends before 10:00.

  • My 8yr. old takes her bath around 7pm and then I let her lay in bed and watch some cartoons until 8pm then lights out. She's passed out within 30 minutes!

  • They have to be in bed by 8pm. If they are taking a bath at night I'd give it around 7:30. They brush their teeth, get a drink of water, and give hugs about 5 minutes before 8.
