Mine is usually asleep by 8.30-9 which I think is too late but can’t get him to sleep any earlier even if I send him to bed earlier. He is just exhausted at the moment and doesn’t seem to be able to shake it off. What time do your 10 year olds go to bed?

I am struggling to get my recently turned 11yo to sleep before 10pm.
Can usually get him to be quiet from 9;30pm (shares room with big brother).

Mine gets up fine in mornings (about 7;45am).

Usually about half 8, up by 6.45

Yeah he struggles to get up at 7-7.30 am too.

Up to bedroom about 8, devices/tv off by about 8:40. Can read until about 9.30.

A normal range of sleep for a 10 year old is within 9-11 hours, although an hour either side of that is still not exceptional and may be an appropriate amount.

Don't look at bed time, look at sleep time, unless he's getting up very early, I would consider other things than simply sleep for the exhaustion.

Mine is 9.5 and is usually asleep by 8.30. Wakes at 7ish.

In bed for 9 and up usually around 6.30 off his own accord may occasionally sleep in at the weekend but only till say 7.15 ish. Never have to wake him up.

Ours is meant to be in bed at 8:30 and can read until 9 on a school night except for tonight as scouts doesn't finish until 9. Usually in bed for 9 at weekends unless we have something on

At that age DS used to turn everything off at 8.30 but was rarely asleep before 9.30.

My almost 10 yo has always been an epic sleeper. Although lately he has started getting up earlier, circa 7am. He tends to go to bed circa 8.30-9pm. He is just settling down now. He has plenty of energy 💁

Mine is in bed around 9-9:30, and asleep by 9:30-10:30 - I can’t get him to sleep any sooner, he just lies awake in the dark if I try. He’s up without bother between 7:00-7:30am

My 9 year old only needs 9 hours sleep a night - he falls asleep by 10.30 and gets up at 7.30. He never sleeps longer no matter what I do but isn’t tired during the day so i have accepted that is all the sleep he needs. He is tired for the first 15 mins when I wake him while he eats breakfast but then wakes up and is full of energy for the day/

My 7 year old gets 9 and a half hours - 10pm asleep and 7.30 awake. He also never sleeps longer no matter what I do and is not tired during the day.

10 year old girl, but she is in bed around 8.30, she can read to herself for a bit is always asleep by 9pm.

10 year old goes off between 8-8:30, and reads until 9. Up around 7:10.

Arowana Thu 14-Mar-19 21:00:07

My 9yo at 8.30, my 11yo at 9. Up at 7am.

ChoccyBiccyTastic Thu 14-Mar-19 21:01:45

Mine is usually between 8 and 9pm depending on how well the evening is going 🙄

But there is a residential school trip coming up and been told lights out will be 9pm! That made me feel better!

PutOnYourDamnSocks Thu 14-Mar-19 21:03:36

To bed at 8 can read til 8:30 gets at 6:30. He goes to sleep quickly and is awake just before his alarm so I figure it’s about right,

zen1 Thu 14-Mar-19 21:05:00

Goes up to bed 9.30-10pm ish. Gets to sleep around 10.30. Up at 7am

LtGreggs Thu 14-Mar-19 21:05:44

Around 8, but he's up by 6. If he didn't have an older brother to try and keep up with, I think he'd be happy going at 7:30.

greenwhitefrog Thu 14-Mar-19 21:15:28

Upstairs/in bed by 7.30, reads until 8 on a school night, 9 on a non school night and he's usually asleep shortly after lights out. He usually wakes around 6ish.

formerbabe Thu 14-Mar-19 21:16:16

Half eight here but with lots of moaning and attempts to spin it out so it's more like 8.45/9pm.

He'd love to stay up later but I know he'd be exhausted and find it hard to wake up the following morning.

HennyPennyHorror Thu 14-Mar-19 21:17:38

DD is 11 and not a boy but that makes no difference...she's rarely asleep before 10. I also feel this is too late but no matter what I try, she still stays awake.

Clutterbugsmum Thu 14-Mar-19 21:18:33

Bed at 8pm lights of at 8.30 pm. Wakes at 6am whatever time he goes to bed. This is am improvement as he was getting up at 5am until around 6mths ago.

I can't wait for my kids to be teenagers and I may actually get a lie in grin.

My 9.5 year old is mostly asleep by 8pm and up by 6.45 / 7pm. He does have one slightly later night with Cubs but he does seem to need quite a lot of sleep (like me)
