  • We attempt to put ours to bed around 7 but it's usually closer to 8, or sometimes later before they get to sleep. They're up between 7-7:30 usually.

  • My girls bedtime is at 8. We read stories from 7:30 to 8. I do have to say I have guilty lately of putting my girls to bed a litter later 8:30 or so lately, its not even dark at 8 due to daylight savings time where I live.

  • Mine is age dependent. Everyone in my house is in their rooms and winding down by 8-8:30. My husband laughs because I turn off the lights in the kitchen and livingroom & lock the door then. He says I am shutting the house down for business haha. The teens (12 and up really) have to be asleep no later then 10. If they stay up and are tired the next day thats on them.

    My 7-11 yr olds are in bed by 9
    When they are 4-7 by 8pm
    Under 4 I have them in bed by 7:30 (even if they dont fall asleep until later)
