Samiam Posted January 11, 2011 Share Posted January 11, 2011 How old where your children when you let them decide what time to go to bed? We always been from the school of thought that children go to bed early, ie in the 7p-ish range. Frankly, not only do I think their behaviour is better but I need a break and night time is my break. DS7 and DS4 are usually in bed no later than 730p. DS12 has gradually gotten his bedtime later and later each birthday. Now we have his rule as must be in bedroom by 1030, and just in the past few weeks, since he's been reading his Christmas books, let him read until 11p.m. Every night he asks to be allowed to stay up later to read. Usually my answer is no. If you want to read longer, go to your room earlier than 1030 to start reading. When do you start letting your child handle their own bed time and sleep habits?
