How many hours of sleep does your 11 year old need? What time does she/he go to bed?
Sigh...I think my DC is like your DC was. I'm trying to eek out a bit more time in the day and thought I could bump her bedtime back a half-hour. In the end, she rarely goes to sleep by 8:30 though, which is her current bed time. Maybe I could bump it back but be more strict on reading time and lights out...
Dylan started going to bed at 10 pm at age 11 with a morning wake up call at 7 am for a total of 9 hours of sleep. Now at almost age 15, he really needs more sleep than that but going to bed before 10 is no good as he wouldn't fall asleep. Since we home school, he could get up later in the morning but then he wouldn't have time to do everything he needs and wants to do. So he occasionally takes an afternoon nap to catch up on his sleep.
Dsd is 11.5, goes to bed around 9:30 on school nights, 9:30-10 on weekends, is up with an alarm at 6:15 school days, up by 8 at the very latest on the weekends and seems to function fine either way..so, between 9-10 hours.
My 11 yr old dd needs 11+ hrs of sleep before she'll wake up on her own. During the week she gets about 9 1/2 hrs/night. Bedtime is 9 but she never falls asleep until 9:30, and she has to get up at 6:50 am for school.
My dd is 12 and she usually gets around 9-10 hours of sleep. She has been very tired lately though, so I am thinking this may not be enough. However, she shares a room with her 10 yr old brother and he is fine with less sleep. We are really struggling with enabling her to sleep enough but her wanting to stay up later. Have any of you dealt with this? We usually have lights out at 8:30-9:00 p.m. on school nights and they wake up at 6:45 a.m.
