How late do you let young children stay up during the summer months?
I let my oldest child stay up until 8:30 or 9 during summer. He usually goes to bed around 8 during school.
My 2 school age children do not have bed times, they have a time they have to be in their room and quiet. They are not required to go to sleep. That time does not change no matter what time of year it is unless we are doing something special. It's easier for us to keep them on a routine year round.
Summer,Fall,Winter,Spring..It doesn't matter..children need at least 9 hours, preferably 10 each night..Their bodies are growing and their minds are going
24-7....while sleeping their bodies grow..lack of sleep is like improper nutrition, it can affect their behavior, attitude, plays havoc on focus/attention span....during school months..8 pm regardless....ages 12+ 9pm...
this also helps parent to deal with stress and gives downtime to them.....
Throw off a childs sleep routine and YOU will pay...Children who are active all day will usually be ready for bed by 8 pm..given downtime 30-45 minutes prior to sleep.
Keeping a sleep schedule usually eliminates problems in the future...just my thoughts...thanks for asking...
