Do you make it later? Mine usually go to bed 7.15-7.30pm school nights. I don't usually make it much later on Fri/Sat (maybe 7.30-7.45pm) simply because they are exhausted from kinder/school on Friday and then Saturday they are tired after swimming and usual play.
Others think we are odd for not keeping them up until at least 8.30pm/9pm.
What do you think?

On a Saturday dd (5.5)is allowed to stay up until 8.30pm she is tired from a big week at school friday so sometimes bedtime is stretched out to 7.30 otherwise its 7pm. I think your times are fine.

DS is 5, his usual bedtime is 7-7.30pm ... The only night he may go later is Saturday's if we have gone out or have people over.

I do exactly the same, some Friday and Saturday may push out to 8pm (like tonight as DD had her first gymnastics class, we were late home, late for dinner and she was too excited to settle down) but no later unless we're out or people over. We believe in routine unless there is a special occasion. We do change their alarm clocks on the weekend to 7.30 to try and get them to have a rest.

Bedtime is 7pm come hell or high water. Mummy time begins at 8 and no child shall disturb the peace. It bemuses me no end why they schedule kid's films that start so late.

I like bedtime to be the same every night, regardless of weekend or not. My 5 year old goes to bed at 7:30pm.. He'd be exhausted if I kept him up to 8:30! And then we'd all pay for it the next day.

My kids have the same bedtime regardless of the day of the week. They don't sleep in after being up late (particularly 5 year old DD) so we would all suffer from a later bedtime on the weekend.
