    We aim for 7:30 with asleep by 8. Realistically, it's in bed by 7:45/8 and asleep by 8:30

    Yep.

    It stuffs the day up when they sleep too late. Plus we leave the house at 6.10am on daycare days and sleeping in on other days screws them and me around.

    Ice in their pjs is also useful

    I wasn't saying seriously due to you waking them up at 6am...it's the cold washer thrown on their faces, and the ice in their pj's that I find...well quite shocking to be honest. What's wrong with just using your voice? I've had to wake my kids before, and a simple little shake and saying their name works. If it doesn't, I just pick them up out of bed and give them a bit of a cuddle and they wake. I don't understand why you're choosing such harsh methods to wake your girls.
    Sorry, I generally enjoy your posts and agree with you, but this just doesn't sit well with me at all. I think it's quite cruel if I'm honest and you don't strike me as a cruel person.

    DD (9) 7.30 bedtime but can read/listen to music until 8.00. She's usually asleep by 8.30

    DS1 (6.5) 7pm bedtime, asleep by 7.30

    DS2 (nearly 3) depends on if he naps during the day. If he does it's an 8pm bedtime and if he doesn't, it's 7pm - after stories, he's asleep in 10 minutes.

    DD1 is 6 and she has been horrible to get to sleep since she was 2. It takes her ages to wind down. Currently it's bed by 8, but she's not normally asleep until 9.30. She likes to sleep until 8.30/9.00am but on school days I wake her at 7.30.

    DD2 is nearly 4. She goes to bed at 7.00. Falls asleep easily. She wakes between 6.30/7.30.

    Bedtime for 2 & 4 yo is usually 6:30, asleep usually by 7 at the latest. They usually go down really well, without a peep. They wake at around 6:30. They don't often have a day nap - if they do, their night time sleep is more like 7:30pm - 6:30am. I'm happy to forego the day sleep to have them both in bed by 6:30

    We've always had a 7pm bedtime for 20 mth old DD, so we would take DD in to read books in her room at about 6.30pm. Her protests have escalated in recent months, so we have bumped her bedtime back a little, and take her in at around 7pm. She was asleep tonight at 8pm, after about 8 books, singing, rocking, flailing arms (DD) and wriggling off my lap. She had a one hour nap today.

    DD has one wake up most nights, and she has always woken up for the day at about 5/5.30am. We've had a few 6am sleep-ins over the last two weeks, which has been divine!

    No shame! I like to have my evenings kid-free, and am naturally an early riser myself, so I do the opposite - early bed time, and the kids therefore are early risers. It's really about me getting my 'me' time in the evenings, lol - some might feel that I have selfish motivations for getting my kids in bed early. Whatever works for each family, I say!
