  • Right now bedtime is 8pm for all 4 of my kids (4, 7, 8 and 10). When school starts the youngest goes to a 7pm bedtime and we test the older 3 at 8pm while still getting up and ready for school. If they can't do it bedtime is 7pm. Last year the oldest (then 9) had a 7pm bedtime so that she would be asleep by 8pm. We tried her at 8pm and she wouldn't get up in the morning and she didn't have to get up until 6:45am.

  • You know what you are talking about! My 9 and 6 yr old boys share a room as well. They are supposed to be in bed by 8pm but like you said that won't happen if you try to put them down at 8. Expect even at 7:30 for them to mess around for like an hour before they settle down. We wake up at 6am too.

  • We do bed time at 8:30, up by 6:30. My kids don't play in bed, but they have their own rooms. If they shared, I am certain it would be a different circumstance. I think putting them in bed around 7:30 should have them actually asleep by 8:30 or so.

  • Do a test run at 7:30 and see if it works out if not then try 8:00.

  • 730 is good since they wake at 6 but I'd say maybe 8 is more realistic. We do 8 and they get up at 7.
