My 18 month old is usually ready for bed between 7 and 8 as well. But the only problem is...then she's up around 4:30 or 5 ready to be up and play...lol

My kids are young enough that they don't really fight it, usually i take them to bed around 7:30 to 8:00. They usually fall right asleep.

My daughter, who is two, goes to bed at about 8:15 every night. She used to fight going to bed, but now we have a little ritual that she follows. I think having a set schedule makes it easier to put kids down for the night, especially younger one.

My son is 8 and he procrastinates so bad. He will strike up a conversation about anything to try and get you to forget about bedtime. (Doesn't work though)

Between 8 and 8.30. He's pretty good about going to bed that time most of the days. But the days dad gets home early they romp around till 9 or sometimes longer. I let him sleep a little later during the weekends (if he wants to). But try to stick to the routine most of the days even during vacations. By the way, my son's 6 now and we have been following this routine for the past 4 years now. Earlier when he used to nap during the day, he used to go to bed by 10 and be up by 6.

My 7 and 9 year old have an 8:30 bedtime and for the most part they stick to it. On weekends they can stay up til 9:30-10:00 but they are so used to the 8:30 bedtime they crash out before then.

During the week when they have school, they are in bed by 8:30pm. Weekends, they stay up until 10pm or 11pm.

All three of my children are in bed between 8 and 8:30. The only one who seems to fight it is my little girl who is three. She find a hundred excuses, water, hugs, kisses, bathroom, to get up.
