  • My son 10 going on 11 goes to bed at 7:30 every school night. He gets up at 6:30 so 11 hours of sleep is perfect for him. We have experimented with him going to bed at 8 & 8:30 and he does not wake up in a good mood and struggles all day in school. The only time he stays up to 8:30 is Fri & Sat when he sleeps till 9:00 the next morning. We have found that when he gets enough sleep he excels in school and is a pleasant person to be around. When he stays up late and gets up early for school he is a grouch to be around.

  • I think it depends on the child and how much sleep they need, and how well they are doing in school as well as how well behaved they are. Lots of factors. Think about YOUR child specifically when thinking about a bedtime for him/her.

  • Quite time for reading begins at 8:00 and by the time 8:30 rolls around it's lights out.

  • Depends on the child. Sd has had a 10 bedtime for a while and she gets up easily. Sometimes she lays down earlier.
