Dd, nearly 11 goes up about 8 and reads til 8:30. She's up at 6:45. Weekends it can depend on what we're doing and how shattered she is.

11 yo DD2 8.20 every night of the week but I start telling her its bedtime at 8.00.

On a school day she can lay in until 7.30 but on weekends she needs to be up at 6.30 confused

She has always needed a lot of sleep and now she does a lot of sport as well.

DSD & DSS are 10 and 11. We aim to have them in bed by 7.30. They each have a bit of book read and lights are out by 8.15. DSS will be up at 6 whatever time he goes to bed and neither of them do well on little sleep. At the weekends they are in bed by 9 and no reading.

8 (nearly 9) goes at 8 on school night (that's in bed, lights out by then) as he's up about 7:45. On a Friday he can stay up until 9 and then Saturday it's 8 again (he is a total grump without sleep). That said, for special occasions such as New Year/ weddings/ holidays etc it's whenever he crashes; I don't think he resents usual early bedtime as he recognises he is grumpy without sleep and knows he's allowed to stay up for fun stuff.

Dd(11) is in her room by 9, usually a bit earlier, and lights out at 9:30 on a school night - she's just not tired enough earlier despite huge amounts of exercise and earlyish starts 4 mornings out of 5

Ds is 9.5 bedtime 9pm. Frequently reads till 9:30 or 10. Up at 7 (self wakes ) for school sadly he just doesn't need much sleep.

Proper sleep is very important for everyone specially the growing children. My 7 and 4 year children have to go to school at 6 am. So I have fixed a time for them to sleep, its up to 9.30 PM. If I don’t they tend to keep on playing till late at night. But on the weekends I let them do as they wish no fixed timings for them on the weekends.

My 9y/o dd usually goes to sleep at around 8:45/9:00, despite the fact that I am always telling her to go to sleep after a few minutes of reading time.Her normal bedtime is 8:15, but she spends about half an hour reading in bed.

8:30 on a school night. Supposed to be 9:00 at the weekend but on a Saturday it is closer to 10. Ds is 9 and in yr 5.

11y DD - lights out around 9pm on a school night. She will often go up and read for a while beforehand.
Weekends and holidays - very flexible.

between 8.30 and 9.00

jemmyjam Wed 30-Oct-13 18:50:42

between 8.30 and 8.45 on a school night, but no later at the weekend. DD and DS get up around 7.00 am.

When DD was 11, she went to bed at 8pm as she needed loads of sleep. When DS was 11, it was upstairs at 8.30, lights out 9ish as he needed a lot less. IIRC!

Somewhere between 9 and 9.30

My 7 and 4 year children have to go to school at 6 am

Eh?!!!

Hope that's a typo!

Our breakfast club opens at 7.30am

9.30-10.30, scouts and gym didn't finish until 9ish and she had a go up at 10ish, but lights on to 12 big sister to distract her.

Being three years younger has never caused DD2 to go to bed any earlier than her sister. In fact for years she still BF while DH read to DD1.

Then she cornered DH instead and at 12 still does
