I was surprise to find out that my friend's kids don't sleep till 10 o'clock and her kids are 7 and 8.

My DD lights are off at 8, and she 6. 

So what time do you put the kids to sleep.

mine are 10.5, almost 9 and 5 ... I try to have them in bed by 10pm or so on school nights.  On weekends and vacations we don't really worry about bed times, they just go to bed when they get tired or if one falls asleep on the couch or something we'll carry them to bed whenever we (mom & dad) go to bed.

Lights off are at 730 and the TV goes off at 8.

My 8 year old has to have his lights out by 8:30 and my 11 year old has to have his lights out by 9:30.  IMO it isn't so much about what time that they go to sleep, but how many hours of sleep that they need.

My son is 12, and his bedtime is 9:30.

He gets up between 7 to 7:30 am.

My daughter is in bed and usually asleep by 7:30.  Tonight, she was in bed at 6:30.  Most days she is up about 7am and at school by 8:30pm.

My son is up about 7am and in bed by 8pm  He naps during the day, too.

My kids are in bed by 8:00 and have to be asleep by 8:30 if not they have to be in bed by 7:30 the next night. I'm told that I am a mean mommy but they need this sleep or they are cranky at school and my preschooler has to take an hr nap when he gets home from school at noon after he eats lunch that is.

My younger two go to bed at 9pm.

My 14 yo DS has to turn off all electronics at 9pm and may read until 11 pm or I go to bed, whichever comes first.

The ONLY reason he gets that priviledge is that we homeschool so he doesn't have to get up at any particular time (though I PREFER that they start school at 9am)
