Hello Ladies, I have 2 stepdaughters they are 7 yrs. old and 10 yrs old. what time is a good time to put them down to bed during the summer. Their usual school bedtime was 8:30pm. If I left it up to their Dad he would say 10:00pm. He has joint custody of his daughters so he gets them 2-3 days every week plus every other weekend. I feel that perhaps he feels a certain amount guilt for not getting to see them everyday so he is wanting them to stay up later. What are your thoughts on a good bedtime.

9:00 sounds reasonable for those ages. If you know what time they go to bed at their mom's house it might be good to stick somewhat close to that for consistency.
