DS who is 7.5yrs old goes to bed between 7pm and 7:30pm. He will usually tell me when he is ready(some nights as soon as it hits 7pm, he tells me its his bed time and off he goes.) Usually takes no more than 2 or 3mins for him to fall asleep. On weekends/school holidays he tries to stay awake longer but usually 8pm is his cut off time as he cant last much longer than that so will ask if he can go to bed.
He will wake anytime between 4 and 5am. Doesnt matter if he was up til 10pm or later, he is still up at stupid oclock everyday
Luckily he is old enough to read quietly and get himself dressed and ready for school. When he was younger he would claim he was dying of starvation and drag me out of bed to make breakfast at 5am
My DS1 is 6.5. He goes to bed at 7pm, usually asleep by 8pm at the latest. He is up at 4:30-5an every single day.
My DD's younger, but kids I've worked with of about this age have gone to bed between 7:30 and 8:30, and got up between 5:30 and 7am.
DP and I have two 7 year olds. They go to bed around 9pm, asleep by 9:03. They get woken at 7:15 for school as I have to drop DD at daycare and DS at school before I go to work.
That time does vary though. Sometimes they ask to go to bed early, like 8pm, and on weekends or holidays it's more like 10pm.
Around 9 pm. He plays a bit in his bed then usually by 9.30 he's asleep. He wakes up around 6.30.
DD's about to turn 7. Until 6 months ago it was always 7.30 bedtime, asleep by 8, up at 7-7.30. Now it's 8pm bedtime, asleep 8.30-9, up 6.30-7.
