I'm curious now

In the last couple of days, I've seen a couple of questions about bedtime for kids in here. Now, I'm curious to know what time people's kids go to bed. So, how old are your kids and what time do they go to bed. I have an 5 year old and and a 7 year old and they go to bed at 8.

  • My two year olds go to bed no later than 8:30pm....but usually it's 8pm. It will increase to later the older they get, but no later than 10pm until they are 15 or 16. They will be able to read for half an hour, then it's lights out. I HATED that my parents made me go to bed at 10pm, but now that I'm the parent, I see why they did that.

  • My 12 year old goes at 9pm , she may read for 30 minutes if she wishes.
    My 8,7,6,5 year olds go at 8pm - they may read for 30 mins if they wish.
    My 2 year old goes whenever we can get her to go , major bedtime issues with her - normally it's 10pm or there abouts , this is GREAT for her . Previously she was staying up until midnight or later despite exhausting efforts to fix that . She just plain hates sleep.
