  • Between 7 and 7:30 depending on how cranky they are. On non-school nights they are in bed no later than 8:30, again depending on their moods.

  • Mine 9, (the one is almost 10) go to bed EVERY NIGHT at 9 pm.
    When they were younger 5-8 they went to bed EVERY NIGHT at 8 pm.
    from about 3-5 they went to bed EVERY NIGHT at 7 pm
    Under 3 their bedtime changed as they got older, but when they were really young under 1 they went to bed EVERY NIGHT @ 5:00 pm and didn't get up until 6 am.

    We homeschool now so my kids don't have to be up early that's why they have 9 pm bedtime now. However if they were still going to school then bedtime would be at 8 pm so they can get up at 6 am to catch the bus. (They don't get up now until about 7-7:30 am).

  • my kids are 10 and 12, they go to bed at 9:30 on school nights and by 11 on weekends, if we don't have to be anywhere the next moring, which isn't too often. So, weekends end up being at 10 .

  • I have 4 kids ages 10, 7, 6, and 2. They all go to bed at 8 p.m. Pedi's will tell you that children this age still need between 11-13 hours of sleep each night to get through their school days.
