my 10yr old goes to bed at 9:30
During the school year my 13, 10 and 6 year olds go to bed at 8. The boys always argue for a later bed time. But I told them until they could get up in the morning on their own, they would be going to bed at 8. Apparently it's too much work for them to set an alarm clock. So 8 it is. lol The 3 year old goes to bed when I do, usually around midnight. During the summer, if my husband is working they all go to bed at 10ish. Can't go before then because of stupid evil ice cream trucks, plus the neighborhood kids are all out screaming until at least 10.
10 year olds school bedtime 9:00 summer bedtime is 10:30
12 year old school bedtime is 10:00 summer bedtime is 12:00
My 12 is usually crashed out by 0830 but she is up at 0500 to catch the bus. Even on off days or summer breaks she's out by 9pm. we live in a quiet area and by the time 2000 rolls around it's pretty quiet even in summer when most go away for the summer.
DD goes to bed at 8:30 on school nights and 9pm during the summer but as long as she hasn't been a giant pita we do allow her to read until 10pm in bed. This summer there is a show on ABC family I think she might like so I was thinking of letting her stay up still 10pm that night to watch it with me.
