What time does your 10yr old go to bed?

I’m wondering if 8pm is too early? I tell her to read in her room for an hour before lights out.

Apparently all her friends have their iPad till 9pm and then read for an hour after that...

9-9.30 here too.

Aim is for 7pm with lights out at 8pm. He is up at 6am sometimes 7am

IWantMyHatBack Mon 21-May-18 20:09:59

8pm then reads until 9pm.

He's up at 6:30am though. If we didn't need to be up until 8am I'd let him stay up later.

No tablets after dinner in the house though. I don't care what his friends are allowed to do.

it was 8 until recently when I realised most sams age were going later. Now I'll send up between 8-9 and she can read as long as she wants, within reason.

Reading/ iPad in bed at 8.30, lights out at 9pm

PiggeryPorcombe Mon 21-May-18 20:11:10

Well he’s 11 now but goes at 830pm for lights out at 9pm and has done for a couple of years. Certainly no iPads in the evening here. Not after 7pm but he does watch a bit of tv.

9.20, but tonight will be 8.30 because she's extra tired.

My 11 yo (12 in the summer) goes up at 8.30ish lights out by 9

Still a nightmare getting her up in the morning.....

No way she gets a later bedtime til she shows me she can rise at a decent hour!

RainbowCookie Mon 21-May-18 20:12:04

745 to 8ish then he reads for 20 mins or so, woken up at 615 if he’s not up already

BastardGoDarkly Mon 21-May-18 20:13:22

9-9.30. Reads for a bit, but is generally tired by that point.

Dvg Mon 21-May-18 20:13:26

In bedroom at 8, sleep time around 9.30pm. 10.30pm on weekends

DoAsYouWouldBeMumBy Mon 21-May-18 20:32:17

Usually 9, reads till about 9.30. Allowed ipad in bed during school hols. He gets up at 7 with his own alarm.

Branleuse Mon 21-May-18 20:34:42

usually some time between 8.30 and 10

which I thought was normal at that age....

Many of her friends are up later.

Chipsahoy Mon 21-May-18 20:49:53

Mine goes up at 7.30 on week days and reads for an hour. He loves his sleep and is hard to wake in the morning so no plans to change it

Sent for a shower/bath at 8pm, lights out at around 9pm most nights.

Reading only after 8pm, no iPads.

They are allowed to stay up later in the holidays and at weekends as long as they don’t have an early morning the next day.

Wallywobbles Mon 21-May-18 21:02:37

8.30 (in theory) for 6 am get up. Can be as late as 9.30/10.

TowerRingInferno Mon 21-May-18 21:03:42

Up at 6:40 (often awake before)

No iPads from 8pm or earlier

In bed, lights out 9pm. Asleep by 9:30 is a good night, however, because of health issues is often still awake at 11!

milkysmum Mon 21-May-18 21:05:21

Around 9pm. Usually asleep by 9.30/ 10ish

shizzlethenizzley Mon 21-May-18 21:06:00

8 with lights off at 8:30. Strictly enforced.
