What time do you put your kids to bed at?

My boys go to bed at 700-730. My oldest used to go to bed when I did but then I started sending him to bed early when he started going to school and my youngest goes to bed at the same time. I just love this time for myself!!

  • My 5 yo is asleep by 7 pm (or earlier if he is tired or sick). My 2 yo goes to bed on his own schedule, and tends to be a night owl.

  • If your child goes to school or daycare, and if you work then they should be put to sleep so that they are able to sleep 8 to 10 hours. If that means they have to be picked up, homework done, fed,bathed and a movie put on in their room for them to get to sleep--so be it. We don't have to be like "every other mother" and let our children rule us instead of us be the ruler. lol I have 4 children and ALL are in be by 9:00 P.M even the 16 year old one. Daddy and I can then have some adult time together without interuptions to go over the day and make a plan for family time . You have to start your children out when they are little or the system will not work. Good luck.
