What time do your children go to bed and what time do you go to bed?

I always stay up later than my children so I can have some quiet time.

  • My daughter goes to bed at 9pm and I go to bed at 10:30, 11:00pm. And my son is still a newborn so whatever time I go, he goes.

  • The nearly 7 year old goes to bed at 8 pm now that it's not getting dark til later in the day. The 9.5 year old goes to be at 9 pm. I go to bed around 1130-12 am. I've always put them to bed fairly early so I could get a break and have some me time - and I wanted to make sure they were well rested. Especially important now that they're both in school.

  • I send them to bed at 8. I usually stay up because then I have to clean up before going to bed and watching the news at 10 or 11. When I was in school I usually didn't get to bed before midnight or even 1.

  • My 7 year old daughter gets up EVERY morning at 6am so she ready for bed at 6:30pm and is a sleep by 7:30pm. We let her stay up longer on weekends. I go to bed at 10pm or 11pm every night.
