    Default Bed time for 5yr and 7yr old

    What time do you take your 5 or 7yr old to bed?

    Ps- my 5 year old wakes between 6.30-7am
    And 7 year old wakes between 5.30-6.30am (he has ASD /ADHD so that's pretty normal!)

    My 6 year old goes to bed at 8pm (in bed at 7:15/30pm for story, etc, lights out at 8pm) and wakes at 6:15. Same for 3 year old but usually light out /asleep earlier than 8

    Ok thanks. So I think I'm on the right track. I usually take them to brush teeth at around 7.10/7.20pm, then read 1-2 books. They're usually alsleep by 8/8.10pm.

    Da is down at 7/7:15 he's 2.5 and he wakes around 7am.

    DD is 5 in a few weeks and she's in bed by 7:15/30 and asleep not long after. She wakes between 5:30 and 6:00am

    For DS he gets enough sleep but DD doesn't. If I send her to bed earlier, she's up earlier, if I send her later, she's still up at the same time.

    4 year old is in bed 7-7:30, generally asleep by 8. Up at 7am, although she's often awake before that.

    Our state government has 'appropriate' bedtimes for children in care... Can't remember what's actually stipulated, but when I work with kids in that age range their bedtimes are usually 7-8pm. Often kids with ADHD etc. are still awake at 9, 9:30 though.

    My kids (12, 9 and 7) are in their rooms by 10pm for quiet time. They go to sleep any time from 10 to 1 or 2am. My 2 (almost 3) year old co-sleeps with us and usually asleep by 12. We do thing's very different here. 😊
