Re: What time to do your kids go to bed?

DS goes to bed between 5:45 and 6:30 pm. He gets up around 5:30-6:30 am. If I keep him up later, he gets up EARLIER. So, that's our "zone".

DD goes to bed between 7 and 8 pm. She gets up around 6-6:30 am. She sometimes stays awake talking in her room until 8:30 or 9:00, but lights are out by 8. Again, if we let her stay up later, she gets up earlier (like 3 or 4 am).

It all depends on your and your LOs sleeping habits. DH and I are early birds, so it doesn't surprise us that our kids are too. My sis who is a night-owl and is married to a night-owl has a daughter who is a night-owl. Her bedtime was much later than my kids' because she slept in later. Let the comments roll off your back and know that you're doing what works for your family.

FWIW, DH and I are both in bed between 9:30 and 10:00. Staying up late isn't for us.
S, mama to K (9/07) and e (7/09) and married to my best friend, E
