Sick of dd nagging to stay up and watch im a celebrity for next 3 weeks, We have bedtime at 9pm on school nights. Is our bedtime reasonable for an 11 year old, dd making me feel like the worst mum in the world....

We moved to upstairs at 9pm when they went into year 7. Lights out next time a parent goes past the bedroom door.

Sometimes I send them up a bit earlier if they're looking tired (or acting stroppy).

My 11 is supposed to be in bed by 9, but it is usually 10 when the lights are finally off. Unfortunately, it is not necessarily her fault. By the time we come back from track and field practice, I make diner and they finish homework it usually gets really late.

My DD is 9 and is in bed lights out for 9pm. She stays up really late at the weekends but can lie in <jealous >

2 11yr olds here, bedtime is 9 on school nights but they manage to drag it out to 9.20/9.30 with forgetting to brush teeth, remembering homework etc.

I'm 11 and my mum makes me go to sleep at 9 every night however my 6 year old sister goes to bed at 9 too. I'm fed up of my friends asking if I am playing out when I am in bed. Trouble is...I can't get asleep because it's light outside and I am not sleepy. My mum said after Sats I could stay up later and she won't let me. I am fed up with getting notifications at 3am from friends asking to face time and I want to go to bed at a more reasonable time!!!
