What time do you send you child(ren) to bed?

Okay I was told it is wrong of me to send my boys to bed at 7:30 pm. I mean I let them watch one episode of anyshow they choose and usually they are asleep by the 2nd commercial. My oldest (4yrs) gets up at 6:55 am on school days. So tell me what you think and what times you send your kids to bed. BTW on weekends it is 9:00pm

  • Seeing as how he is only 4 yr old and has to be up so early I would say no later than 8pm his little body needs alot of rest to give him energy to '' torment '' you when he gets home again lol

  • I think you would know better than anyone when your children get sleepy. 7:30 is a reasonable time since they wake up early. Mine are out by 8:30 or 9. but they are younger and have no reason to get up early.... yet.

  • It is never wrong to send your child to bed at any time u desire, my daughter is 5 1/2 and she goes to bed at 9 every night, but every child is different.

  • My 2yo has been going to bed at 7 since she was about 9 mos old. Her choosing not ours. She gets up between 8 and 9 everyday. Some days I actually have to get her up or her schedule is completely thrown off.

  • i think it really depends on you as a parent, what you think is best for your child. I personally start getting my son ready to bed about 7pm he has a snack takes a bath watches a bit of t.v and he's in bed about 8 no later then 9.
