What time do your children or child go to bed?

Both mine have a 8:30pm bed time for school nights (even though my daughter isn't old enough for school yet). When it's not a school night I let them stay up until 10pm sometimes. If they are being good.

  • My elementary school age children go to bed by 8:00 pm and I let them stay up until about 9:30pm on the weekends. I am only stingy with their sleep time because they like to sleep almost 11 hours and they are a bit cranky in the mornings if they don't....

  • My kids are on a late schedule thanks to their dad's previous job (running a restaurant). He had weird/late hours and so I'd let them stay up until 11pm to see him before bed. Now that he's home full-time, and now that my 3yr old is in preschool, we've gotten them on an earlier schedule, albeit not much earlier. My 1-1/2 yr old is usually in bef around 8:30 or 9, and my 3yr old is usually in bed at 10.
