    Hi guys,

    Im wondering wether to up my older kids bedtime.

    on school nightrs, they go to bed at 7, at weekends, they go to bed at 8.

    do you think thats to early for an 8 and a 6 year old? they have had the same bedtime since they were tiny so i thought maybe i should review it now.

    i think its real good for children to get a good night sleep but i think maybe uping the weekend bed time :D

    dont think my daughter gets anough sleep. she goes to sleep about 8pm i wake her at 6.30am (to get her to childminders) and she has a hr nap in the day????

    what do you think? you have experience that aint much for a 1yr old is it?
    but when im not at wrk she will have 3 hrs in the day but she will only sleep in her cot which in one way is real good for a baby but in other ways bad cuz when im working she aint sleeping

    My 5 year old goes to bed at 8.30 on a school night and 9 on a weekend but thats because she doesn't sleep very well anyway and she doesn't get asleep till around 10 no matter what time she has been up.

    Mason (4) is in bed by 7.30 on a school night, and 9 latest on a weekend.

    Layla I think maybe allow the 8 year old at least an extra 1/2 hour.

    I think 7pm is fine for them both on a school night but maybe let them stay up a little later on the week end.

    :D
