My sons are 8 and 6 (almost 7), they go to bed between 8.30 and 9pm depending on how tired they are that night. At the weekend I let them stay up until normally around midnight as they get as long as they want to lie in in the mornings as long as we don't have anything on. If they are tired thought they will just take themselves upstairs and fall asleep, normally watching a DVD lol x

my son is 8 and he gets put to bed at 7 but he has aspergers so we have to start early as it can be as late as 11 some nights before he will settle

my 10 yo dd doesnt really have a bed time as such, she is usually pottering about in her room when her brother goes up to bed, i just leave her to it as she has no problems with sleep or getting up in the morning - she is normally sleeping by 930 at the lateset

I'm a teacher too (or was) and I hated seeing poor tired children coming into school. They don't learn as well, they don't behave as well and therefore the other kids don't learn as well and I can't do my job properly. I would have an 8 year old in bed by 8, and a 10 year old in bed by half past. Kids need sleep and grown ups need quiet time!!

Depends what time they have to get up at normally. What I would question is what they would be doing at 11 o' clock. It's not like they can play outside and the tv is completely unsuitable!
