go to bed. I know this question has probably been asked on here before.. But I'm curious. My oldest is 9 and she goes to bed at 8pm( has since she turned 8) they other two are 6 and almost 3 and they go to bed at 7pm.  Now they all have tv's and typically go right to sleep. Now if they are having issues sleeping the tv goes off... I always feel so bad because my kids go to bed but there friends are still outside playing, still knocking on my door and still calling...  but I have to admit I'm a little selfish when it comes to my quiet The weekends are sorta different but the latest they are up is 9... That's if they are be having... So that being said how old are your children and what time do they go to bed?

My DD is 8 and she goes to bed around 9pm, but we would prefer if she was in bed with lights out by 8. She usually gets up a couple times before finally settling down for good for the night so sometimes I guess she doesn't actually get to sleep until 10:30 or maybe even 11. But that's not an every night thing. She doesn't have any 'entertainment' things in her room like any sort of screens. Sometimes she has her mp3 player or radio, but hose often get taken away as consequences for bad behavior.

7 year old goes at 8:30, the middle two (15,13) at 9:30 and oldest (17) at 10.  When they entered fourth grade they outed go toyed at 9:30 and when entering high school bed at 10.  Weekends they can stay up a hour later...minus the oldest since he works later

 9pm, any later and it's like pulling teeth the next morning trying to get him up.  On the weekends he can stay up late.

They go to bed at 7 on weekdays because we have to be up really early.  Weekends vary depending on what we are doing, behavior, etc.  But usually they are in bed by 9 on weekends.
