How late do you allow your child to stay up?

On a school night?

On the weekend?

I let my son stay up until about 9:00PM-9:30PM during the week. Home work is done after dinner, then his bath usually before 8:00PM.

On the weekends I let him stay up til 10:00PM - 10:30PM, though on the rare occasion he has stayed up til after 11:00PM and then some times during the week and weekends he is out for the count by 9 PM!

  • Bedtime is 8pm on school nights for my kids (4 1/2, almost 8, 9 and 10).  They come in around 7pm from playing and then either take showers or do their reading.  At 7:50 they start brushing their teeth and get in their pajamas if they haven't already and then lights out at 8pm.

    On weekends they usually stay up until 9pm if they are behaving (although last night I let them stay up until 10pm because I was sick and didn't feel like doing the whole bedtime thing...I just waited until they all decided they were tired and went to bed on their own, lol).

  • My 8 year old goes to bed at 8:30 on school nights, although we are talking about a 9Pm bedtime now that her mornings are getting better...on weekends its about 10ish, depends on her attitude and whats going on.

  • wow, bedtime during the week 7.30 and 8.30 on weekends. Mind you they are up and down constantly until about 9.30, so perhaps this needs to be their new bedtime.
