I would say 8pm but no later than 9pm would be a good time.  It also depends if they have a nap during the day but even so I would go no later than 9pm.

Kids need plenty of rest. I remember my aunt would tell us to go to sleep at 8p.m. But I think that the best time for a child to go to sleep and be fresh for the next day would be 7:30 p.m :wave:

You have to consider the amount of sleep they are getting.  Kids usually need at least 8 hours of sleep.  Some studies have suggested that kids and teens really need 9 or 10 hours sleep.  Base this on what time they are going to bed and getting up.

I AGREE WITH LEEBRA, think of the amount of sleep they get, if she goes to school, she definitely needs a nap, what i do is, take to bed not later than 9pm, gets up by 7-7.30am and again when she comes back at 3pm from 3.30pm to 5.30 i give her a nap that will sure help them, that is 12 hrs, thatz what is needed upto 4 to 5 yr depends, my older 1 she doesnt need 12 hrs shez ok with 10 hrs of sleep, but she will definitely goes to sleep by 8.30-9pm usually i try to take them to bed at 8.30 but, sleeps only by 9pm the problem is i had to stay with them in the bed till they sleep so 1/2 hr time is wasted for me.

Mine have always went to bed at 9pm on the weekdays. Weekends they go to bed when I do or right away if they get in trouble after 9pm.

You should base it on what time they need to get up as well as how much sleep they need to be refreshed... If they don't have enough sleep, they'll be tired the next morning. But too much sleep can also make them feel groggy. Usually kids need 9-10 hours of sleep... So if you need to get them up by 6 to get them to school by 7, then getting them to bed by 8 is about perfect; 8pm-6am = 10 hours minus up to an hour just to get to sleep and they're still in that 9-10 hr range. If, on the other hand they aren't going to be getting up till 8 (with school starting at 9) then they could stay up till 9 or 10 and still be refreshed for the next day. Then again you may also want to wake them up more than just an hour before school starts, in which case they should get to bed earlier accordingly.

You may also want to gauge it with the sunset, esp. in the more northern areas where there is a greater shift in the amount of sun-lit hours. During the winter, you're probably safe to get them to bed by 7, but come the summer months, 7 may still seem bright as day, and the young kids won't understand why they have to go to bed "so early". Also if they have a strong circadian rhythm, they may be afflicted by SAD (Seasonal Affected Disorder) so that they'll be unable to get to sleep early, no matter how early they're sent to bed. If that is the case, you may need to invest in thick window covering so that their circadian rhythm won't be reset by the light and they can continue to get to sleep shortly after they are put to bed. You may also relent and allow them to stay up later in the summer months, so an 8 bedtime during the winter becomes a 9 bedtime come May...
