I had to go to bed by 9 till I was in high school, in the summer I could lay in bed and read till I was tired, usu 10 or 11. I'll likely do this for my kids. But we are early risers. How late do you let the 12 year old sleep in?

I think 10 is quite appropriate.

I also have 4 kids. Their ages are 12, 9, 5, & 2. They don't have a bedtime anytime of the year. We homeschool, so it's easier for us to get away with that. They go to sleep when they are tired or when we decide it's late and they should go to bed. Our whole family are nigh owls. So, we stay up late and sleep in. It works for us. The kids don't start school until after lunch and finish somewhere around 5.

10 sounds appropriate unless it is a special occasion.

Bedtime at my house is 830, asleep by 9 usually for the oldest, youngest naps at daycare (state mandate) and its 1030 or so before she goes out. But we are up and gone by 730 in the morning every day. Hard to say if I was a SAHM, and they got to sleep in in the mornings, then I'd say 10.

 my kids over the summer don't have bed times , but they have an electronics cut-off time of 10pm. no tv, no computer, no radio , no phone ,etc.  we are about to start bedtime to get them use to school time again.

 i generally don't go into work until about 10am anyway and sometimes at worl until 11pm so it is a break for me too.
