  • My kids are 5 and 2. Before school started we let them stay up until 9-10pm. Now that my son is in school they are both in bed by 8pm and up bright and early at 5am. Same goes for the weekends just so we can keep them on the same schedule.

  • My older two are about 2 1/2, and 1 1/2, they go to bed at 8. My youngest is 7 months old, he is usually down for the night by about 11, and he's just now starting to have that kind of consistent time he's asleep for the night by.

  • My kids have always been to bed by 8pm..summers and everything. The only time they stay up is for a family movie night or if we go to the fair or something. On weekends they sleep until 9ish and they wake up at 7am on school days.

  • My kids are 10, 9, almost 8 and 4 1/2 and bedtime is 8pm on school nights and 9pm on weekends.  The baby goes to bed whenever he goes to bed (he's almost 3 months).  Up until this year bedtime was 7pm for all the kids.  Although, when my 3rd child was a baby I used to sit up and watch TV with her until 10 or 11pm while we waited for Daddy to get home from work.  But she was a baby and slept off and on all day long.  Eventually she adjusted to a 7pm bedtime like the other kids (around the time she turned 1).
