I am amazed some kids can go on less sleep. Our neighbor lets her 6 y/o son stay up until 10 every night. Our son would be impossible to deal with on that amount of sleep.

Funny, as I get older (I am 36), I have trouble sleeping in. On weekends my internal clock wakes me up at my usual 5:30, just before my regular alarm would go off. Sometimes I can fall back alseep until 9 or 10, but I would have had to stay up until 1 or 2. For the most part I am up by 8. My wife can sleep until 11 or 12.

Think I do better anyways with a mid afternoon nap. Even 20 minutes and I am good to go.
When I first read your post I thought you said your 5 year old GOES to be around 10 or 11 . I can't even stay up that late some nights .

My family doesn't sleep much. My kids get about 6-8 hours of sleep, I get less than that but I know they're teenagers when they suddenly need lots of sleep.

My 12 year old gets about 9 hours a night during the week.
My 9 year old, probably about the same or maybe a 1/2 hour more - depends on how late he stays up reading at night.

I bet if school didn't intervene, they'd get a good 10 a night, but I can't get them down before 8:30 - 9:00.

Somewhere between nine and eleven hours; the kids are six and almost nine. They fall asleep somewhere between 9 and 9:30 most nights, and are awake between 6:30 and 8 most days. They can get up when they want to (unless we're going somewhere in the early morning, which is rare), so I think that they are well-rested enough.
