So, I was very interested in the 'Bedtime" thread. But realize that I do not wake my DD till 1hr before we has to get out of the house which is 8:45. So, how many hours do you expect your 7-8 yearl old to sleep. Right now I have bed time at 8:30 and wake up 7:45, so 11 hours. She does have a hard time waking, but giving her only 1hr to wake and get ready to go. How many hours does your child sleep at night?
