    DS is 7 y/o and his bedtime has always been 7:30/8:00… with the exception of Sundays and Wednesday b/c we have service so it’s as soon as we get home, usually right about 9.

    Kids that age should be getting around 12 hours of sleep a day. So if they do not take naps they should get almost that much sleep at night.

    DS sleeps from 11-13 hours a night.

    When I was pregnant with DS YEARS ago now (lol) I read that not getting enough sleep plays alot into behavior and even learning abilities b/c all that the young brain is doing and that it only does it while sleeping… SOOOO I’ve just always set an early bedtime.

    Dr. WebMD says that children between 3-6 need 10-12 hours of sleep per night.  So, if she wakes up at 6:30, she could be in bed, asleep by 7:30 and not be getting too much.  However, 8:30 still puts her getting 10 hours, which is technically enough.

    Is it possible she is also not actually asleep at 8:30?  Kids are pretty good at pretending to sleep when, in fact, they are not.  I learned that lesson years ago as a babysitter. 🙂

    My stepson is 5 and his bedtime is 7:30. It only gets extended on weekends the odd time if we’re doing something special or fun, but we try to stick to the 7:30 time as much as possible. He’s been in that routine for as long as I can remember! Sometimes he’ll even ask to go to bed early, that always throws us for a loop, lol! He’s pretty predictable in his solid 12 hours though, any less and he’s a cranky little man.

    I think it depends. My nieces and nephews are always late sleepers, bed time not till like 930-1000 up the next morning for school. But they are always raring to go every day.

    My husband’s nieces on the other hand if they are not in bed by 7pm boy oh boy are they cranky pants, little piss pots.

    In your friend’s case it sounds like they need more sleep!
