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

Both of mine (4 year old DS and 2-next-week DD) have always been natural night-owls...we've managed to get them both to a bedtime between 10:30 and 11pm each night...we used to not get to sleep until 1 or 2 am with either of them. They both nap from 1-ish to 4-ish each afternoon and are up between 8 and 8:30 almost every morning. We don't believe in forcing our children to sleep because we think they need to be in bed...we more try to follow their natural clocks & let them set their own schedules. DS did morning pre-k this year with no issues and we'll be homeschooling from now on so the whole waking/sleeping/napping thing isn't an issue for us.
