  • Well I think every family can be different and it depends on the family schedule. Me for example..hubby and I both work FT our kids are very heavily involved in sports, our 3 older kids are 14, 13 and 9 and the baby 13 months. I do drop off/pick ups at school, he takes the baby to daycare. by the time we are both done picking everyone up after work it's about 6-6:30, then we go to any sport or school activities, sometimes it's 9-9:30 before we even get home. Our 14 and 13 year old have to be in bed by 10, our 9 year old by 9:30. There are some moms that are able to work it out where their kids are in bed as early as 8 and I could only imagine how great that would be, there would be more time to get things done but even then that wouldn't work for us. I think you need to look at your situation, obviously younger kiddos would be in bed alot earlier than my 3.
